STRANG, BROWN, ARGUBRIGHT AND DELONG MAKE UP NEW ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING - OFF-ROAD TEAM
Husqvarna is set to go off-road racing in 2015 with a strong roster of championship-winning riders and the support of a new title sponsor- Rockstar Energy Drink. Husqvarna's off-road program is proud to welcome Rockstar Energy Drink as title sponsor, effectively creating the off-road division of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing. New to Husqvarna this year is past champion and eager contender, Josh Strang. Returning for a second year are factory riders Mike Brown and 2014 Champions Andrew DeLong and Jacob Argubright.
"We are really excited to expand our race efforts with Husqvarna," said Rockstar Energy Drink Marketing Director, Mike Kelso. "We are proud to be a part of the rebirth of such a legendary brand."
"Bringing on Rockstar Energy as a title sponsor is a really important step in our alliance as we take on off-road racing at the most reputable stages," said Husqvarna Motorcycles North American President, Jon-Erik Burleson.
New to the Husqvarna team, Josh Strang will be contesting the 2015 GNCC Series aboard a Husqvarna FC 450 in the XC1 Pro class, and will also race the National Enduro series aboard an FC 350.
Joining Strang in his 2015 efforts will be Husqvarna's off-road phenom Andrew DeLong. The reigning champion will be continuing his deep-seated relationship with Husqvarna, and defending his title in the AMA National Enduro serie

The Australian native inked a 2-year deal with Husqvarna, and will be contesting the 2015 GNCC Series aboard a Husqvarna FC 450 in the XC1 Pro class, and will also race the National Enduro series aboard an FC 350.
"I have been a Husky guy ever since I could remember," Strang said. "My dad used to race them and that is all I ever wanted to ride! Joining Husqvarna really brings back memories, and puts a lot of excitement back into my racing program."
The 2010 GNCC Champion is looking forward to reasserting himself in the series, as well as making a strong effort in the AMA National Enduro scene, both of which he feels he can accomplish through the support of Husqvarna Factory Racing.
"I am confident that Husqvarna can give me everything I need to win another GNCC Championship," Strang commented. "I'm really happy with this decision and can't wait to get things rolling!"
Team Manager Timmy Weigand is also enthusiastic about Strang's move to Husqvarna. "I'm excited about the opportunity Strang brings to the team on the GNCC front. He has a lot of experience with 14 career wins and a championship under his belt. We are confident that with Husqvarna Factory Racing behind him, Josh will be on top again in 2015," said Weigand.
