2012 AMA Motocross

Oakley, one of the leading sports brands in the world, and MX Sports Pro Racing/Alli Sports – organizers of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing – has announced the “Oakley Bomb” Fastest Lap Program for the 2012 AMA Motocross series.

The weekly award program, set to recognize the fastest clocked laps at each of the 12 Nationals for both the 250 and 450 Classes with a special Oakley Bomb trophy, will recognize the rider who accumulates the most Bombs throughout the season with an Elite Oakley Time Bomb II Swiss Automatic Watch at the end of the year.


y Paggio (Oakley’s Two-Wheel Motorsports Manager) says: “Everyone watches practice to scout who the badass to beat is for that weekend. We want to recognize those riders that put their butts on the line every practice and hang it out to get the fastest lap time. The Oakley Bomb will award the guys on top of their game for a single qualifying lap for both classes, not just those who necessarily end up on the podium at the end of the day. They deserve to be rewarded.”

The radically designed Oakley Bomb trophies, reflective of the iconic brand’s irreverent personality, unrivaled design and hard-charging attitude of purpose beyond reason, will be handed out through the end of season – at which time a tally of the rider with the most overall Bombs in his collection, will be presented with the ultra stylish, technologically superior Oakley time piece.

With its heritage deeply rooted in Motocross, with high tech grips as its first ever product at its founding in 1975, Oakley’s prominence in the sport continues with a collection of its most elite current riders. From James “Bubba” Stewart, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, Davi Millsaps, the Geico Honda Team and many more throughout the ranks, the company’s spirit is alive and well in the Outdoors.
