The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team is pleased to announce its six-rider off-road team for the 2023 season , covering AMA GNCC , NGPC , National Enduro , National Hare and Hound , EnduroCross , U . S . Hard Enduro and West Hare Scrambles across the United States .
Returning to the GNCC and National Enduro series for his sophomore year in the premier Pro division is Pennsylvania native Craig DeLong . Building off of a strong 2022 season in both series , DeLong is knowledgeable of what it will take to consistently put his FX 350 on the podium in 2023 .
Like DeLong , teammate Trevor Bollinger will also be returning to the GNCC and National Enduro series aboard the FX 350 . Bollinger suffered through a challenging year in 2022 , sustaining an injury halfway through the season , but the North Carolina native collected some impressive results to close out the year and he looks to come out swinging in the new season .

Austin Walton will certainly be a championship contender on his FX 450 in 2023 , finishing runnerup last year in the NGPC series . Walton will also be entering the West Hare Scramble series this season , which will be a change of pace for him but with a background in hare scrambles , the Nevada native will get up to speed quickly .
