In October, Jason Anderson moved from Rockstar Energy Husqvarna to Monster Energy Kawasaki. After his first seven seasons in the 450SX class aboard a Husqvarna FC 450—including his 2018 450SX title—the New Mexico native will be riding a Kawasaki KX450 in 2022. Anderson last raced on a Kawasaki in his final year as an amateur when he finished 13th overall (1-1-DNF) in the 250 A/Pro Sport class and first overall in the 450 A class (1-1-5) at the 2010 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch. He won the AMA Nicky Hayden Amateur Horizon Award for his performance that week. Anderson will make his debut on the green machine on January 8 at the Anaheim 1 Supercross in California.
Now that "El Hombre" is a member of the Monster Energy Kawasaki team, Dirt Shark and his crew had to welcome Anderson and his Team Fried crew (Tom “Tommy Tenders” Journet and Matt “Fried” Rice) to the Monster Energy family…and things got a little weird. Guess it’s safe to say the trio is out of this world.
Okay, enough with the bad jokes. Enjoy the video!
