Three weeks after learning that his L&Mc/Honda Racing Team was closing its door for the rest of the 2013 season, Andrew Short has found a new home at BTO Sports – KTM. Short will join up with BTO’s Matt Georke and Les Smith.
For the past few races, Short has continued racing after buying his own Honda and pitting out of the Mike Kranyak Racing rig. He said at this past weekend’s Dallas Supercross that he was about to announce his new deal.
“I’m very excited to have Andrew Short on board and riding for our team,” said BTO Sports owner Vince Arimitsu. “This brings the BTO Sports – KTM team to another level with two solid riders in the top 10.”
This won’t be Short’s first time on a KTM, he rode for the factory team before moving to the L&Mc/Chaparral Honda Team at the end of the 2011 season.
Short is currently seventh in the 450-class Supercross points standings, just three points behind Justin Barcia.
