For 2012 the team has doubled the amount of riders and will feature 2 full semi-trucks complete with an innovative fan experience.
Combining the lifestyle of today’s youth with the performance of a professional racing team is a difficult balancing act and the Hart and Huntington team pulls it off with style.

Joining Tedesco on the team for 2012 will be Josh Hansen, Kyle Partridge and Josh Hill.
