Nick Wey Wins His 1st AMA 125 Outdoor National; Carmichael Third

The AMA Outdoor National Motocross series visited Millville, Minnesota on August 15, 1999. In relatively cool weather (compared to recent rounds held in extreme heat and humidity), young Nick Wey (Kawasaki) won his first overall victory while posting a first place finish in moto one, followed by a fifth place finish in moto two. Stephane Roncada (Yamaha) rode well to finish second overall (3/4 on the day), while Ricky Carmichael recovered from a very troublesome first moto to take third overall with a convincing second moto win (10/1 on the day).

Carmichael still has a huge lead in the points over second place Brock Sellards (Honda), but Carmichael has lost his chance to pass the all-time leader in 125 outdoor national overall wins (Mark Barnett) this season. Without a chance to break Barnett’s record, Carmichael might switch over to the 250 class after clinching the championship (which he will surely do at the next round).
