Kawasaki signs Lusk, announces 2002 racing teams

Kawasaki has announced their riders for the 2002 AMA/EA Sports Supercross Series and AMA/Chevy Trucks U.S. Series for its two teams: Team Chevy Trucks/Kawasaki and Team Kawasaki/Pro Circuit/SplitFire.





They have added Ezra Lusk and James Stewart. Ricky Carmichael will leave to ride with Honda.





Lusk, who is 25 years old, began his racing career Team Green. Stephane Roncada, who is 21 years old, will start his second season on the 250 as well.





The 125 riders will be National Champion Mike Brown, Shae Bentley, Bobby Bonds, and newcomer James Stewart.





Bruce Stjernstrom, Kawasaki’s Director of Professional Racing says “Next year’s team is one of the best teams we’ve ever assembled in our 30 years of racing. We’ve put ourselves in an outstanding position to challenge for championships in both supercross and motocross.”





Ricky Carmichael will be leaving Kawasaki after 14 years.





Stjernstrom continues “Parting company with Ricky after such a lengthy relationship is like saying good-bye to a close family member, and in fact that pretty much sums up the way we’ve worked together over the last 14 years. He and his parents have been regular fixtures at Kawasaki racing activities for a long time. But, as in all professional racing endeavors, change is part of the landscape and we only wish him well. Kawasaki has played a significant role in Ricky’s championship process. We’ve just defended the 250 AMA Motocross Championship and we accomplished what we set out to accomplish – sweeping both the 250 supercross and motocross championships. Ricky is a unique young man who will be missed both professionally and personally by the many he worked with at Kawasaki through the years, and his name will be proudly recognized by Kawasaki racing fans alongside those of other motocross champions who went before him, such as Jeff Ward, Jeff Emig, Mike Kiedrowski, Mike LaRocco, Jim Weinert, and Brad Lackey.”
