Motocross rider turned desert racer joins Husqvarna’s factory off-road outfit.
Former AMA supercross and motocross regular turned desert racer Andrew Short will add the WORCS series to his racing commitments in 2018 as he joins the American Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing outfit.
Short, already a member of the global factory Husqvarna team in desert and rally racing, is set pilot the FX 450 in next year’s WORCS championship alongside his efforts in the Dakar Rally and FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.
“I am really excited to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team and to race the WORCS series,” Short commented. “I think it’s something that has become a big passion of mine.
“The off-road community is unique and how they approach racing is really cool. With my motocross background and continuing to race rally, I feel like off-road is a great combination of the two and I am hoping to find a lot of success doing it.”
The American favourite retired from a lengthy motocross and supercross career in 2016 before making a shock transition to rally racing, beginning with the 2018 Dakar Rally. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Team is set to be completed by Colton Haaker, Thad Duvall and Trevor Bollinger.
