Corona, CA: Husqvarna's FAR Team Ready For National Enduro Series Opener

It's where competition began for Husqvarna in America, and Fred Andrews Racing (FAR) is bringing the iconic brand back to its origins. The 2012 AMA/Rekluse National Enduro Series kicks off in Wedgefield, South Carolina, and Husqvarna is proud to once again be a part of it.

Andrews and his race team - consisting of Jason Thomas and Andrew Delong - have been hard at work, training and testing in Florida, and are looking forward to kicking off the 2012 race season. Thomas will be racing the TC250 and Delong is contesting the 2012 season aboard a TXC310.

"We're excited to get back to enduros," Andrews said. "Husqvarna made a vast improvement over least year's bikes. The 2011s were good, but this year's are better. We've got some new exhaust systems from Pro Circuit and we're excited to go racing!"

The Husqvarna brand might be a seasoned fixture when it comes to racing enduros, but Thomas and Delong are relatively new to the series and the race format. Andrews - himself a multi-time National Enduro winner - admits that initial expectations are modest. He expects to see great things from the FAR duo once they get some enduro experience under their belts.

"We're definitely going to be top-ten guys - maybe top-five starting out," Andrews commented. "As the year goes on, we're going to be looking to do better. We're going to try to win one, or some. But our main goal is to bring Husky back to the enduros and show people that we have a strong presence and we're going to get better."
