In the midst of having two injured 450 riders – that’s Jason Anderson and Dean Wilson – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing has announced that Phil Nicoletti will be filling in aboard the FC 450 Rockstar Edition for the remainder of the Pro Motocross season.
Nicoletti comes to the team with 30 top-10 finishes in his Pro Motocross racing career.
“I am happy to have the opportunity to finish out the Pro Motocross season with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team,” said Nicoletti. “I look forward to getting on the bike and showing everyone what I have. Thank you to everyone backing me, see you at the High Point National!”
Bobby Hewitt, Team Manager, commented: “It has been a devastating week for all of us here on the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team. Losing Zach Osborne for the remainder of the season is unfortunate but he will be back, just as strong as ever. We are excited to have Phil for the rest of the Pro Motocross races and know he will mesh well with the team.”
