STEPHEN WESTFALL STEPS DOWN AS ROCKSTAR HUSQVARNA TEAM MANAGER
A week away from the opening round of the 2022 AMA Supercross Championship, Husky team manager Stephen Westfall announced that he will step down from his position at the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team. Westfall, best known as “Scuba,” began at Husqvarna in 2014, Westfall was promoted to Crew Chief for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team, where he served as an integral part of the team’s championship-winning success, including three 250cc titles with Zach Osborne and capturing the brand’s first-ever 450 Supercross Championship with Jason Anderson. Westfall became the U.S. SX/MX Team Manager in 2020, which culminated with a first-time 450 National Motocross Championship with Zach Osborne.
Stephen Westfall said, “This is probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, but ultimately I have decided to step down as Team Manager and head back to the east coast to spend more time with my family. I want to thank Husqvarna Motorcycles for giving me the opportunity to work here over the past eight years and wishing my Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team all the best in the upcoming season – I will be rooting for them every weekend!”
Westfall will remain on-board through the west coast rounds of the 2022 AMA Supercross Championship in order to help the team transition to a new manager, which will be announced at a later date. The opening round will take place on Saturday, January 8, in Anaheim, California.
