Christian started his career with the Lucas Oil/Honda Factory Team in 2009. He fractured his back during his debut season and underwent an 11-hour surgery to repair it.

During his retirement, Christian served as a property manager for a custom home builder in Minnesota.

“I honestly can’t put into words how much this opportunity means to me,” Craig said in a team statement. “Before I retired, I could have only dreamed of being on the GEICO Honda team and now it’s a reality. It’s crazy to me and I feel like it’s a dream.”
Some of the riders say the Houston track is fairly technical. In the 250SX East division, veteran Christian Craig finished the charts on his new Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha bike. He was the only rider in the 250SX class to break the 43-second bracket (including the 450SX class for that matter) and topped the next fastest rider Jett Lawrence (Honda HRC) by a huge margin of almost a full second, 43.765-44.585.
