The All-Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) will run a 56-race schedule across 11 states that also features a 35 percent increase in the season-ending prize fund in 2022. The winner of the championship will be presented with a record $80,000 check, which is $15,000 more than 2021. Second-place will pay $60,000.

“We’re really excited to get the schedule released so that our teams and fans can begin making their 2022 plans,” said Tony Stewart, owner of the All-Stars series in a release. “To be able to expand the points fund next year is something that I am absolutely thrilled about.

“We wouldn’t be able to do this without the extended support from our tracks and partners. … It is humbling to see the continued interest from tracks that continue to grow our events, and partners that want to utilize our platform to promote their brands. This growth can be attributed to the team owners and drivers that support our series; we wouldn’t be in this position without them all.”

The race action begins in less than three months with a set of six non-points races in Georgia and Florida in early to mid-February.

It will conclude the weekend of October 7-8 with a two-night stand at Fremont (Ohio) Speedway.

The first points’ paying races will begin with a two-night show at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park in April, which bookends the series in the Midwest.

Highlighting the schedule will be several lucrative events including the $55,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway as well as the $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial on that same track, the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, which moves to I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Mo. for 2022 and the $20,554-to-win Dean Knittel Memorial at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park

New dates on the 2022 All Star campaign trail include Sharon Speedway’s Sharon Nationals, an $18,000-to-win weekend which is set on Friday and Saturday, September 2-3, a pair of $12,000-to-win visits to Ransomville (N.Y.) Speedway in Ransomville and Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, New Jersey and Atomic Speedway’s Freedom 40 awarding $15,000-to-win.

“Fans will continue to see all of our staple events in 2022,” said Stewart. “It’s also important to continue to evaluate new opportunities and expand to new markets or revisit tracks that we don’t necessarily get to race at every year.”

Vicki Golden and 805 Beer tell a unique story from an Inverted Perspective


Vicki Golden has earned a career worthy of a thousand stories and 805 Beer tells at least one of them, as “Inverted Perspective” premiered March 30 on the company’s website and YouTube channel.

Golden did more to break the glass ceiling in SuperMotocross than she ever thought possible. She knows this because riders have never felt the need to explain any of her accomplishments with the disclaimer, “for a girl”. 

At this point in Golden’s career, she’s been the first woman to finish top 10 in AMA Arenacross Lites, the first woman to qualify in the Fast 40 in Monster Energy AMA Supercross and the first woman to compete in freestyle Moto X competition, earning a bronze medal by doing so.

Her love for moto came from childhood while she watched her dad and brother ride. By seven she was on her bike and making waves throughout Southern California. 

Golden, 30, is still madly in love with the sport and has no plans on moving away but her career is already one to talk about. 805 Beer’s film series wanted to do exactly that.

“I’m taken aback by it all,” Golden told NBC Sports about the documentary. “It’s just crazy to see your story, it’s one thing to live your life and battle everything that comes about but it’s another to just sit there and talk about it.”

805 approached Golden about the feature by asking, “Do you even realize that what you do, and your story is special?”

Golden took the question as a blank canvas to map out the highs and lows of her career and life.

The title “Inverted Perspective” came from a brainstorming session with Dominick Russo and it highlights Golden’s outlook on the sport of SuperMotocross and her life in general. 

“My whole life, my whole career was thinking differently and looking at things that shouldn’t be done and aren’t there, while being able to make a place for myself, where no one thought there should be a place,” Golden said.  “It’s inspiring someone to think in different ways. It sums up my life.”

While Golden is no stranger to the spotlight, this was the first time she’s been fully involved with the storytelling and creation of a feature about herself. 

“It’s not like a full new experience,” Golden said. “Obviously, you get your standard questions about your upbringing and accomplishments, but I’ve never really put into perspective things that happened in my past with my dad and putting that to light. Also, certain other things that maybe got overlooked in previous interviews or films. I wanted to touch on these and Dom wanted to create a story. It’s just cool to see it come to light, it’s a nearly impossible thing to tell somebody’s life story in 40 minutes.”

Golden’s father was left paralyzed after an ATV accident, robbing him the opportunity to ride again. This happened a few months before the father-daughter duo was set to compete in the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Nationals when Vicki was 12. While she might have been unable to grasp the severity at the time, it’s something she carries with her. Golden continues to ride in his honor.

Years later, an accident in 2018 nearly sidelined the then 25-year-old Vicki when a freestyle accident almost resulted in the amputation of her lower leg.

“Inverted Perspective” highlights her father’s diligence in helping Vicki continue with her career and the kindness and strength he carried while fighting his own battle. 

“My dad was the entire reason that I started riding in the first place,” Golden said. “So, to honor his memory and to honor what we went through and how hard he pushed to keep our dream alive and keep everything going – in that sense then, it was really special to be able to honor him and talk about him.”

The 40-minute feature was filmed entirely in black and white, a stark contrast from the oversaturated world of motocross where the brighter the suit the easier it is for fans to find their rider and follow him in the race. By filming in monochrome Russo and Golden had the chance to focus on the race and track from a different perspective. 

“It was cool to be able to film it differently,” Golden said. “It created a challenge in the sense of what was going to be more visually impactful for the film.

“I couldn’t be here without the companies that back me but at the same time, it’s not like the logos or colors disappeared, it’s just different lights shed on different spots. It’s just a cool way to do it and to take color away and still be impactful. When you think of black and white, you think of old school, the OG way of doing things.”
