His first championship came outdoors in 2006 following a third place in the Western SX Lites series.

    Ricky Carmichael. James “Bubba” Stewart. Ryan Villopoto. You know the names. But what common denominator do these Motocross Superstars share – to the very core? (Besides Oakley Team Legend status, of course.) Loretta Lynn’s. The AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, named from the Country Music Megastar – whose giant Tennessee property hosts the annual event, is where the best young phenoms in the sport rose through the ranks to stardom. Groms/young riders are groomed at Loretta’s. Pro riding dreams are made…and crushed. Big industry sponsors are fishing for the talent of the future. And lifetime amateur rippers continue to grow their passion for the sport. It’s a vibrant collection of racers from the past, the present and the future. But more importantly, Loretta Lynn’s reflects Oakley’s deeply rooted heritage in motocross.

But make no mistake, this wasn’t just any meet and greet. The stars got down and dirty – gearing up in Oakley Motocross gear, mounting dirt bikes and trying their luck at the intense sport.
