I found some RC trivia on the AMA page. Looks like Budds Creek has been pretty good to him over the years and is a fitting place for him to get is 100th outdoor win.

*Ricky Carmichael has never lost an AMA Motocross overall at Budds Creek, with seven consecutive wins (14 motos entered, 12 moto wins). He also has two overall victories in the 125 class, now known as AMA Motocross Lites

*Of the 124 rounds of AMA Motocross Carmichael has raced since 1997, he has won at least one moto 108 times.

*Carmichael’s win last week gave him 99 combined AMA Motocross wins for his career. He also has 147 SX/MX wins in his career.

*Carmichael has never lost the fourth round of an AMA Motocross series in his 10-year career.

*For the eighth consecutive season, Carmichael holds the MX points lead after three rounds.

Who isn't.
I didn't think RC was gonna do it for a minute.

I can't believe there hasn't been more talk about that battle for the lead. Wow! what a great race. When RC got the pass in there was no stopping him but waiting to see how he would do it was one of the most entertaining things I've seen all year. JBS fought it the best he could. I jumped out of my chair after that pass.

Why does JBS always get some kind of stomach ache in MX?

so who else thinks he won't have any excuses not to win after ricky is done racing?
who thinks anyone will beat him?

Sure, Langston passed him, Alessi can get starts, Millsaps and Short are right up there, and Ferry practices with him all the time, but unless Stewart really slacks off because he doesn't have to beat Carmichael, those guys are really going to have to step up their game.
