Fred Andrews of Fred Andrews Racing (FAR) has announced that team racer Jason Thomas has chosen to leave the FAR Husqvarna team effective immediately.
Citing personal reasons for his departure, Thomas plans to return home to England to be with his family.
“He was a guy that gave us his all,” Andrews said of Thomas. “He pushed hard through injuries and rode with a lot of heart. We enjoyed some really great results together over the years and we’re sorry to see it end, but we’re still looking forward to finishing out a strong season in National Enduro and GNCC with Andrew DeLong.”
“It’s obviously never a good thing to have a situation like this mid-season, but we respect the fact that Jason has to do what’s best for him,” said Husqvarna Product and Racing Manager, Derek Sorenson. “We wish him well and will always be grateful for the great results he gave us.”
The FAR Husqvarna team has plans to replace Thomas with another rider for the remainder of the 2012 National Enduro and GNCC series, though no decisions on who that rider will be have been made at this point.
