Carmichael dominant in win at AMA Toyota Motocross Championship

Carmichael’s victory also marked the eighth win of his career at the popular Mt. Morris track and the 146th of his illustrious career, further cementing his position as the sport’s “Greatest Of All Time,” a nickname and a physical description as he continues his retirement season.
"This one is special, especially racing James like this," said Carmichael. "I like this place and I love the dirt here. The track was a little on the difficult side. It was tough to pass and tough to change lines. The fans here have been very good to me."

On this day, Carmichael proved too much for James Stewart (Kawasaki), who led the first half of the first moto but couldn’t match Carmichael’s speed in a runaway in moto two. Carmichael cruised to the easy win in the second moto for a 1-1 moto sweep. Stewart was second (2-2) and Davi Millsaps (Honda) was third with a 4-3 finish.
