He rocked it his first time out in the 2009 Challenge Cup. He knocked out a championship during his first full season of 2010. As a result of winning the championship, Stenberg was crowned the SuperLite Rookie of the Year. For the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Season, Jeremy has entered a new phase in his life and is excited for all the new endeavors he will endure with Premiere Motorsports Group this upcoming season.
Always making headlines in more ways than one, the inspired X-Games FMX hero has quit the long time association with Metal Mulisha and joined forces with the “Iron Army’s” biggest industry rival.
The contention between the two off road teams has created a battle that will take place on four wheels as opposed to two. Instead of dirt bikes, Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg will be racing a 900HP PRO-2 at 80 miles per hour through tight banked corners and 100’ jumps.
Driving for Premiere Motorsports Group, 9-time X-Games medalist, Stenberg will run the prepped #88 PRO-2 competing for the entire 15 round series. The truck is supported by MAVTV, General Tire, Hart and Huntington and the rest of the Premiere Motorsports Group/Hart and Huntington Off Road team, with it’s 2011 sponsor partners soon to be announced. Jeremy stated “I jumped into racing trucks and went for it. My record shows I know how to drive. What can I say? I love to race and with these trucks we get to rub doors. It don’t get no better than that.” You can also catch Jeremy on VH1’s new reality TV series X-Life, be sure to tune in every Monday at 10pm Central/9pm Pacific!
“Twitch” had a killer first year with three 1st place victories, a 2nd and two 3rd place finishes awarding him the 2010 SuperLite Championship and Rookie of the Year,” explained Ryan Busnardo, leader of Premiere Motorsports Group/Hart and Huntington Off Road. Ryan went on, “What we are going to do now, is get Jeremy up to speed for racing against the biggest, wildest class in off road racing. We now have the #88 set up for his driving style and we have a lot of laps that are going to be turned.” P.M.G. is also excited to bring on Danny Ebberts who will be the crew chief for the #88 Pro-2. Even though Danny is new to Premiere Motorsports Group, he is definitely not new to the off road. Danny has already accomplished so much including, 2010 LOORRS Mechanic of the Year. He also won the 2006 Vegas to Reno Race as a driver and builder in addition to 2001 USAC Midget Champion. Last year Danny accomplished over seven 1st place finishes in LOORRS as crew chief.
The Premiere Motorsports Group fleet will be running an all new Hart and Huntington theme that closely resembles Carey Hart’s Super Cross Team. “We gotta keep it real,” Carey said. “The Hart and Huntington Empire is moving ahead fast. We got a lot of things going on and Jeremy lives the INK ROCK MOTO lifestyle perfectly. I am stoked to have him on the team this year.”
The 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Series kicks off on March 19, 2011. The team will be traveling to Firebird Raceway in Phoenix, AZ for Rounds 1 and 2. Visit www.lucasoiloffroad.com for further information or to purchase your tickets online for the upcoming event!
