Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Focus on
Continued Motorsport Success
MURRIETA, CA – August 8, 2019 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to announce the extension of their partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink – a strategic, global collaboration that will see Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing lengthen their participation in worldwide offroad motorcycle competition through 2020 and 2021.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing have played a pivotal role in reinvigorating the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand through their varied global supercross, motocross, enduro and rally racing activities. Earning hard-fought titles on both sides of the Atlantic, 2018 saw Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing claim their first ever AMA 450cc SuperCross Championship, together with Jason Anderson. Rounding out an incredible supercross campaign, Zach Osborne lifted the AMA 250cc East SuperCross Championship.
In 2019 Colton Haaker enjoyed victory early in season, clinching the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship, while Graham Jarvis, Alfredo Gomez and Billy Bolt are well placed inside the top five in the ongoing World Enduro Super Series.
Beginning their successful partnership in 2015, in recent years the collaboration between Husqvarna Motorcycles and Rockstar Energy has further developed with the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION being integrated into Husqvarna’s extensive motocross line-up. Built to perform at the highest level, the motorcycle formed the basis of the machine Jason Anderson used to claim the coveted 2018 AMA 450cc SuperCross Championship.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s motorsport activities are ongoing. Be it in the FIM Motocross World Championship, AMA Pro Motocross Championship, World Enduro Super Series, Grand National Cross-Country, Endurocross, Dakar Rally or the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing are focused on achieving further racing success in the coming years.
