LOS ANGELES, Calif. - In language invoking mystery, Jeremy McGrath’s Supercross team, L&Mc Racing, announced today that it has ended its 2013 season after only three races.

The team said that it will “regrettably cease team racing operations for the 2013 season, immediately, as the result of circumstances beyond the team's control.

"L&Mc Racing principals, seven-time Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath and team manager Larry Brooks, as well as their rider, Andrew Short, are committed to running a program with the utmost level of professionalism. However, recent unforeseen events outside the team's control have prevented that from occurring."

The team suggested that Short will be racing with a different team: “Larry Brooks and Jeremy McGrath wish their friend and colleague, Andrew Short, the best of success in 2013 as he continues on with his career.”

McGrath said: “We did our best to keep Andrew out on the track, but forces out of our control dictated that we conclude the season much earlier than we anticipated or planned. Andrew is a class-act, and we wish him success throughout the rest of the season and beyond with his new team.”

L&Mc's PR firm responded to Dealernews’ request for details by saying that it did "not have any more information at this time."

L&Mc thanked its current sponsor roster for their loyalty, commitment and support. Sponsors included Chaparral, Honda, Western Power Sports, Bel Ray, MMI, FMF, ODI, Talon, Dubya, Matrix and Ironclad.
