In a true show of class and sportsmanship, Ricky Carmichael has stepped up to sponsor John Dowd’s Farewell Tour for the Millville Round of the AMA National Motocross Series.
Dowd, now back to full privateer status, started the season with no outside the industry sponsors to pay for the many expenses of his Farewell Tour. Dowd has been selling individual, one-race sponsorships of Team JYD. Active8 Racing, Racer X, Spectro Oils, Renthal America, Pro Circuit, Kicker Audio and now RC have all been weekend sponsors of the team so far this year. Carmichael admires Dowd’s toughness and never-say-die attitude and thought it would be a great way to show his respect for John in one of the final races on his Farewell Tour.
As RC goes for his 9th overall win of the 2005 MX series, Dowd, who turns 40 August 10th, will be looking to become unofficially the first 40-year-old to finish in the top ten of a National Motocross race. Said Dowd: “I am very excited about having RC as my sponsor this weekend. Ricky is a true champion on and off the track, and I would like nothing more than to put together two great motos to say thanks to my new sponsor.”
