Husqvarna is Proud to Celebrate its First North American Victory

Less than one week into the New Year, Husqvarna is proud to celebrate its first North American victory with Jacob Argubright! The factory Husqvarna rider rode his all-new Husky FC 450 to a commanding win at the opening round of the AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship Series at Arizona Cycle Park in Buckeye, Arizona.

Argubright opened up a near two-minute lead over the field by the time he reached the checkered flag on the GP-style course. He had also lapped all the way up to fifth place by the finish of the 2.5-hour race.

“I was pretty nervous for my first race with factory Husqvarna,” Argubright said. “The first couple laps didn’t go as I planned and then I finally loosened up. I feel like I really got used to my FC 450 in that race; it worked great all day.”

In addition to his landmark win, Argubright reached another milestone – his 23rd birthday on January 4. “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday,” Argubright said. “It was a great start to my season and I’m looking forward to keeping the Husky on top in the 2014 season!”

Argubright’s season continues later this month with the opening round of the FMF/GPR AMA Hare & Hound National Championship Series on January 25, which he will also contest aboard the all-new 2014 Husqvarna FC 450.
