BLUE Buffalo/Slater Skins Yamaha today announced that Josh Cartwright will fill-in for the injured Andrew Silverstein for the remainder of the 250SX East Region. Silverstein was brought on to replace Benny Bloss, who parted ways with the team right before the Atlanta opener. If you want to follow the game of musical Yamaha chairs, Bloss is now on the CycleTrader.com/Rock River Yamaha team filling in for the injured Luke Renzland.
Cartwright made his 2016 debut for the team in Toronto and finished a season-high fifteenth. He raced a few supercross rounds as a pro rookie last year out of the FMF box van, and was picked up by a team in AMSOIL Arenacross for the rest of last season.
Cartwright is currently a full-time student at Florida State University, where he is studying for a degree in Computer Science. The 20-year-old currently trains at Ricky Carmichael’s property in the area.
