Moto Hero Program Continues
for 2022 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship


Active Duty and Veteran Military in Addition to First Responders Within the Motocross Community to be Celebrated for Going Above and Beyond All Season Long


MX Sports Pro Racing has announced the celebrated continuation of the Moto Hero program for the 2022 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. This heartfelt initiative shines the spotlight on individuals within the motocross community, specifically active duty and veteran military personnel in addition to first responders, who have gone above and beyond in an act of selflessness to help their community or someone in need.

The Moto Hero program was introduced to honor the service of all veterans and public first responders through recognition of a nominated member of the motocross community. While the award itself celebrates the service of one deserving individual, it is done so in tribute to all service members and first responders, and what they’ve given of themselves in their commitment to public service.

“The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the greater motocross community. The fans, enthusiasts, and weekend warriors who live and breathe the sport are the lifeblood who provide us with an opportunity to build the stage on which the world’s fastest racers showcase their talents,” said Tim Cotter, Event Director, MX Sports Pro Racing. “As organizers of the series, we look to embrace the communal element of motocross in every way possible and the Moto Hero program has given us a platform to celebrate and recognize the special members of our community who put others ahead of themselves at all times. We can never truly thank our service members and first responders enough for their contributions, nor properly honor the sacrifices they’ve made, but this well-deserved recognition amongst the fanfare of the Nationals allows us to share a token of our appreciation.”

Each Moto Hero that will be recognized at every one of the 12 rounds of the 2022 season will ultimately be selected by each respective event organizer. Each recipient will receive a specially designed Moto Hero number plate, commemorating their coveted distinction and recognition on behalf of the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series.
