Michael Mosiman turned professional in 2017 as a member of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna 250 team and will remain with the team for the near future. Team owner Bobby Hewitt announced on Instagram this morning that Mosiman has signed a two-year deal with the team. According to the post, Mosiman will race with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna through the 2021 season.
“I’ve known Mosiman and his family for many years," Hewitt wrote in the post. "I can remember Michael coming to the race rig when he was just tall enough to see over the skirts asking if he could come in and see inside the race rig. Now, years later he has his own section of the Race Rig to hang out!! #timeflies#hardwork #congratulations”
Through eight rounds of the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, Mosiman has missed one round—after a practice crash suffered during the week leading into the sixth round at Southwick kept him out of competition—but has finished inside of the top-ten six times in the seven races he has competed in. He earned his first professional overall podium on June 1 at the Thunder Valley National when the recently turned 20-year-old finished 4-3 for third overall. He currently sits in eighth place in the 250 Class points standings.
Below is Hewitt’s full post:
