Dodge/Hart&Huntington riders head to San Diego.
SRT Motorsport and Hart & Huntington will field two Dodge/Sycaun Casino/Hart & Huntington/Bell-Ray Racing Kawasaki 450s in Saturday night’s event at San Diego. The riders are Josh Hansen and Kyle Partridge. Teammates Josh Hill (broken left tibia) and Ivan Tedesco (broken right ring finger) are sidelined due to injuries.
Both Dodge/Hart & Huntington riders advanced to the Main Event last week at Anaheim. Partridge finished 16th and Hansen 20th after suffering early brake issues.
“I feel like I was showing some good speed last weekend in Anaheim and just got caught up in mechanical deal with the bike. I had good lap times and thought I was a top-five bike for the Main. I just need to carry that momentum into this weekend at San Diego.” – Josh Hansen
