LOS ANGELES – (March 19, 2011) – Returning to the track where he won his first short course off-road championship, just a few short months ago, Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg debuts this weekend as part of the infamous Hart & Huntington/ Premiere Motorsports off-road team!
In addition to a new team, Stenberg also makes his official debut within the heavily stacked Pro 2 Unlimited class facing off against some of the most competitive racers in the sport today including seven time Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath, who took third place championship honors in the 2010 season, and former teammate Brian Deegan.
Rounds 1 & 2 of the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS), kick off today, Saturday, March 19th and continue through Sunday, March 20th at the Firebird Raceway in Chandler, Arizona. Stenberg had this to say regarding the recent career changes in his life, “I am super pumped to be part of the Hart&Huntington/Premier Motorsports team and grateful for the chance to be able to compete in the Pro 2 class…looking forward to it ALL!”
A 9-time X Games medalist, Stenberg recently completing a season of “The X Life” for VH-1 and looks forward to the start of filming for season 2. Stenberg’s wife Susie manages the athlete’s jam-packed competition schedule, which will likely necessitate two or three different camera crews in order to capture the couple’s frenetic schedule.
