Andrew Short got his Factory America Honda Team ride the old fashion way; he earned it. After multiple years honing his skills in the Lites division riding for the satellite team Moto World, Andrew was given a shot by Honda. Immediately, they were impressed with his efforts riding the Honda CRF 250F. Andrew was promoted to the premier class for the 2007 season and has been flourishing there ever since.
2008 marked Andrew’s best results to date; he placed third in the SX Monster Energy AMA SX Series and then matched that placing in the AMA Toyota Motocross Series.
