Lucas Oil Ladies introduced for 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship
MX Sports Pro Racing has announced the four Lucas Oil Ladies team members, who will ride at the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
Beginning on 18th May at the Bell Helmets Hangtown Motocross Classic, the well-known veteran duo of Carrie Bolling and Nicole Cesa (who have been part of Lucas Oil Ladies since 2014) will be joined by Peyton Min and Sadie Welch. Together, the four of them will play a pivotal role throughout the summer season and will help show a different side of the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series.
Bolling is a native of Richmond, Virginia, and has been involved in motocross for the majority of her life. She competed in her first race aged 8. Boiling has a degree in Industrial Engineering from West Virginia University and currently works full time in the healthcare industry.
“The motocross industry is essentially one big family, which has made saying goodbye to being a Lucas Oil Board Girl harder than I ever expected it to be. I was ecstatic when the opportunity to remain involved became a reality, and I’m excited to be invited back for another year as a Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship ambassador. I can’t wait to show the fans more behind the scenes than ever before!” - Carrie Bolling
Cesa is from Southwest Pennsylvania. A chance opportunity with Racer X while in college helped her fall in love with the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. She has also done acting and modelling work, and has a passion for fitness. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems from West Virginia University and works full time in the IT industry.
“Working as a Lucas Oil Board Girl for the last five years has been some of the best times of my life. I’ve met people from around the world, built long-lasting friendships—many of whom I now consider family, and travelled throughout the country. It’s been hard to walk away, but Carrie and I have continued to look for ways to continue being a part of the sport. I’m super excited to be back alongside her as a Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship ambassador, and I can’t wait to engage with all the fans to show them a different side of the races.” - Nicole Cesa
While Min and Welch are relative newcomers to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, both are very familiar with the sport.
Min comes from Valparaiso, Indiana, where she is starting her junior year at the University of Indiana, Bloomington as a major in Exercise Science.
“I am looking forward to being at the starting gate for the start of all the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship races. My home track is ReeeeeedBuuuuud! I’ve been attending that national ever since I was five years old, and I’ve always been amazed by those passionate fans. I’m eager to experience the atmosphere and energy at all the other National tracks across the country!” - Peyton Min
Welch’s off-road experience has been in the woods of Whiteland, Indiana, where she has raced the Grand National Cross Country Series (GNCC) on a quad since she was 7. She will begin her sophomore year this autumn at Purdue University, where she’ll continue her role as a member of the NCAA Division I cheer team.
“I’m so excited to hang my helmet up on the weekends and experience the motocross life on the road. I’ve never really had the chance to experience the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship first hand like this. I’ve been a cross-country racer pretty much my whole life, so I know I’m going to experience a whole new world of racing. I’m really looking forward to it!” - Sadie Welch
The 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship kicks off on Saturday, May 18, with the Bell Helmets Hangtown Motocross Classic near Sacramento, California.
