2018 Season Recap:
Justin Brayton will remember the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Championship forever. On March 10th in Daytona, Brayton became the oldest racer in history to score a 450SX Main Event victory. It was a great season for Justin overall as he was able to also win a Triple Crown Main Event in Atlanta and would finish the 2018 season with six top five fi-nishes. To highlight his remarkable season, Brayton also signed a two-year extension with SmarTop/MotoConcepts Racing Honda.
2019 Season Recap:
Brayton’s 2019 season will not be remembered as fondly as his 2018’s, partly due to a crash with Chad Reed at Seattle that kept him out for a few rounds. His best race finish all season long came at Minneapolis where he placed 5th.
After finishing his American racing season, Justin competed in the Australian Supercross Championship where he rode through serious injuries, taking almost every podium in the season to come away with the overall Championship win. Marking his 4th straight title with Penrite Honda Racing in the Australian Supercross Championship 450cc.
