Carlsbad, CA – After long consideration Josh Hansen recently decided to leave the Rockstar Energy / Hart and Huntington Race Team for the remaining 2009 Supercross season. Hansen made the personal decision to refocus for the 2010 race season after suffering the recent losses of friends Jeremy Lusk and H&H Racing teammate Anthony Hart both due to unfortunate motorcycle accidents.
“We fully support Josh’s decision to withdraw from the 2009 season. It was a personal decision and we wish him all of the luck in the world,” says Hart and Huntington Race Team owner Carey Hart.

“We are really excited to be working with Matt, and having him on the Rockstar Energy / Hart and Huntington Race Team. We have super high expectations for him and we are looking forward to the future,” said Team Manager Kenny Watson.
