The 2012 Motocross Season kicks off this Saturday in Sacramento at Hangtown.  I have the schedule for you but first………A few months ago Racer X and Lucas Oil had a contest looking for someone to help design this years track stickers.

  • For those of you who don’t know…..every year, at each of the outdoor tracks, you can collect the event stickers.  The stickers are always similar in design with the unique track name and date from the event you attend.  The idea is to attend as many outdoor events as you can and collect a sticker from each event.

I entered a design idea into Racer X Magazine and guess what ?……….my design was chosen to be this years sticker.  I knew that many different ideas would be entered and my family thought it would just be fun to try to come up with a cool idea and I was so excited when they contacted me and said that our design would be featured at this years outdoor national events.

This is the press release that was recently issued –

Winners Revealed for Racer X Sticker Design Contest

This year’s exclusive stickers will be fit for a champion.

Racer X turned the creation of their annual motocross stickers over to the fans for the first time this year. The fans stepped up to the challenge, delivering some awesome concepts, but there was one idea in particular that was so good, it was actually submitted by two different people. Shoji Nakayama and Hunter Cross took different approaches to mocking up their concepts, but the message was clear: championship plates are in.

California’s Hunter Cross, 9, may be gunning for the real deal one day. He isn’t just a fan – he’s a racer. Hunter recently competed in the World Mini Grand Prix. If you’ve ever wondered what the sport of motocross is like through the eyes of a child, check out Hunter’s blog ( for some insight.   Joining Hunter in the metaphorical Winner’s Circle is Shoji Nakayama of Schererville, Indiana.

If you’re coming to the races this summer, be sure to stop by the Racer X booth to try to get your hand on one of these stickers. They’ll be customized for each round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, so see how many you can rack up.


Pretty cool right?   My design was chosen, They mentioned my name in a press release, and they even mentioned my website.

I will be at Hangtown so if anyone is going to round 1 make sure you find me and make sure you pick up the coolest outdoor sticker to date…

*Make sure to check your local listings, schedule is subject to change

Saturday was the Lucas Oil Motocross Washougal National race.  We got up early to watch practice, walked through the pits some more, and watched the races.  It was so fun to watch the pro’s and see what lines they were taking and I got some ideas for my race the next day.

We had a great spot to watch the races, and for the second race I managed to work my way into the Rockstar-Makita-Suzuki VIP tent.  It was the perfect spot to watch the race and I could watch the TV to see the parts of the track that were really far way.
