Husqvarna is returning to AMA National Enduro competition after a 20-year absense from the series.

The team will be elad by Husqvarna national sales and marketing manager, and AMA Hall of Famer, Scot Harden. A three-time International Six Days Enduro medalist and two-time Baja 1000 winner, Harden will lend his experience as the team’s crew chief and will oversee Husqvarna’s Enduro effort while also taking over the GNCC and EnduroCross programs which began with the 2009 season.

“After reentering the racing arena in 2009, Husqvarna is focused on improving its results and competing for championships in 2010,” says Harden. “We have a very talented team with the right combination of youth and experience to drive the program forward. We look forward to competing throughout the year to reestablish Husqvarna as the leader in off-road racing.”

Australian rider Glenn Kearney will compete for Husqvarna in the 2010 AMA GNCC and National Enduro series. Kearney raced for Husqvarna in the 2009 GNCC series, finishing eighth overall while winning the SETRA Little Brown Jug on a TC250. For 2010, Kearney will ride a Husqvarna TXC250.

Glenn Kearney will ride the TCX250 in Husqvarna's return to AMA National Enduro racing.

Former WORCS Champion Bobby Garrison has signed on to compete in the WORCS series and other west coast off-road races on a Husqvarna TC450. Garrison will also compete in AMA District 37 Big 6 Grand Prix events.

Cory Graffunder will represent Husqvarana’s EnduroCross program, competing in the MA and World EnduroCross series, as well as Hell’s Gate and other extreme events on a TC250 or WR300.
