Hampshire Signs Two-Year Deal with Factory Husqvarna
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team is pleased to announce the two-year signing of RJ Hampshire to compete in the 250cc division of AMA Supercross and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship through the 2021 race season.
The Florida native captured his first-career overall victory at the 2017 FIM MXGP of USA from Florida's WW Ranch Motocross Park, and went on to claim his first Pro Motocross triumph at the 2018 Budds Creek National. Most recently, Hampshire finished fourth overall in both the AMA Supercross 250SX West Championship and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross 250 Class Championship, and looks to build upon that success next season.

“Big changes for me this offseason, which brings a lot of excitement and motivation. Everyone’s been awesome and I’m very impressed with the Husqvarna FC 250. The bike seems to fit my riding style well and I am very thankful for this opportunity! The expectations are high for myself and the team, [and] we are looking forward to this fresh start!”
Bobby Hewitt, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager:
“We’re looking forward to working with RJ for the next two seasons. He is an experienced rider with great potential and we expect a bright future with him and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team.”
