Tim Weigand: Team Manager: “2019 is going to be a strong year for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Offroad Team. We have an exceptional rider line-up that I know can push the limits to come out on top!” 

Colton Haaker: “I am looking forward to 2019 and continuing to win races as well as championships. In the later part of 2018, I had a comeback season and was able to regain the Endurocross championship, that was lost the year prior. My goal is to continue the success and put my Rockstar Energy Husqvarna FX 350 up front where it belongs!” 

Andrew Short: “I am really excited to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team and to race the WORCS series. I think it’s something that has become a big passion of mine. The offroad community is unique and how they approach racing is really cool. With my motocross background and continuing to race rally, I feel like offroad is a great combination of the two and I am hoping to find a lot of success doing it!” 

Thad Duvall: “I am super pumped to get the 2019 season started and am looking forward to another awesome ride on my FX 350. I have had a great two years running up front, but it is time for a championship!” 

Trevor Bollinger: “I am excited to be riding for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team. It is a real honor to be working with such a professional group and I look forward to a great 2019 season!”
