The Legends and Heroes 2016 Supercross Moto Museum Tour visits New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium for Monster Energy Supercross Rd. 15. Saturday evening’s race program kicks off with a tribute to Supercross great and National motocross champion Barry Carsten.
A Garden State native, Carsten began racing at age 12. At 16 he’d entered the pro ranks and throughout his career Barry was revered as one of America’s best across many racing disciplines including AMA Supercross, the AMA Motocross, Arenacross and tearing it up at Raceway Park. When it comes to motorcycle racing, Carsten has seen and done it all, including earning and running a Top 100 national number for 23 years – a rare accomplishment for any rider. Listed as No. 5 on the AMA’s All Time National Starts roster is solid proof that the New Jersey journeyman racer made a great career in racing.
“Barry Carsten is a true champion who has represented our sport well. Since his early days racing at Englishtown to his stellar national finishes, this man has done it all,” said Alex Moro, General Managing Partner for the Legends and Heroes Tour.
With his racing days behind him, today Barry remains involved in the sport with his motocross schools mentoring young riders, working with the AMA and riding every chance he gets.
This Saturday at Met Life Stadium, Barry Carsten will appear at the Legends and Heroes Supercross Museum in the Monster Energy Pit Party for a fan “meet and greet” after which he will be receive the coveted Legends and Heroes Award on the Monster Energy Supercross podium by 6-time AMA champion Broc Glover.
