Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna has announced that Jason Anderson has signed a four-year contract extension to remain with the team. That Anderson will remain with the Bobby Hewitt-run operation is no surprise, as it’s the only race team he’s worked with in his professional career, and the length shows that there is loyalty between all groups. Anderson and the team debuted the all-new 2018 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition motorcycle at the 2018 Anaheim One Supercross, and Anderson finished in second place in the 450 Main Event.
