Michael Mosiman: “I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to make my pro debut under the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team rig for the 2017 motocross season! The fact that I will be under the tent of one of the premier factory teams as a rookie blows my mind. I’ve grown up racing at Hangtown and have always dreamed of the day I’d be racing the National there as a pro.”

Martin Davalos: “I’ve been wanting to race in the 450 class for a long time now. I am thankful for the opportunity and actually just found out that I was approved to. I haven’t been able to do much testing, but I look forward to racing and adjusting to the FC 450 throughout the summer.”
Bobby Hewitt – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager: “I’m excited to see Mosiman make his pro introduction at Hangtown this season. Mosiman will be the first of three amateurs we have in our amateur program that will make their pro debut at Hangtown each season. With the addition of Mosiman in the 250 class this season it allows me the flexibility I need to evaluate more experienced 250 rider’s on the team in the premier 450 class.
Martin racing in the 450 class is equally as exciting for the team. We have worked together for many years and I know how important this opportunity is for him. I personally believe Martin is going to surprise some people with his speed and do very well this season on the bigger bike.”
