Lol Don't like the new numbers one bit, barcia needs to be 17. Good thing he will be running number 1. Roczen 70, thats I could get used to. How come so many guys are missing off the list?

Who's missing? If they didn't earn enough points then they won't have a top 100 number.

It would be nice if they explained the missing numbers in the low digits.

4 - RC

6 - Lampson

8 - Grant Langston (?)

13 - Heath Voss (?)

I see 199 is no longer listed.

Post above you lists one of them

Also, are you not allowed to run a 3 digit number if you have earned points? I hear Roczen is bummed he's not 94, or at least 194. In the past riders could use a 3 digit number so they could keep their old one. Ex craig: 44 as an amateur -144 as a pro. Barcia 51 amateur - 151 1st year pro. etc.

How do you get a career number?

In the past, the AMA listed the top riders 1 to 100 for MX/SX 250/450 and handed out the top 100 numbers. Every year, they all got new numbers.

Then the AMA decided to copy NASCAR and award "career numbers". Basically, as long as a career number is being held by a rider scoring points in National MX and SX events, they get to keep the number. To get a number under 10, you need to have more than one championship. Top rider 11-20.

Chad Reed could get a lower number, but he has decided to stick with 22 as his trademark. John Dowd keeps showing up for a couple races to make the points he needs to keep his number.

When a career number is given up, it goes back into the pool after a few years, if no points are scored.

RC's #4 is blocked out for several years due to his multiple championships. But even McGrath's #2 was recycled.

I like RC as much as the next guy but that makes no sense at all. You have to earn points every year in order to keep your number (20 points I think?).

That's why you see John Dowd race a couple times a year, so he can keep the #16 and same for Mike Brown so he can keep the #3. It's been a few years since Carmichael has raced...... Maybe he get's special privileges like he did when he used illegal fuel??? 👍

Then again, I wouldn't want to be the guy that takes the #4. Kinda like asking to be handed the #1 IMO.... :smashpc:
