The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team is a very well established, winning team with a great program behind it. When I began talking with the team, they were very confident in the future they could provide and they believed in me, which is obviously really important to me. I’m excited to see how I can progress in the 450 class full-time with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing crew.”
