American Honda Thanks Justin Brayton/JGR Announces Signing

Torrance, CA (September 18, 2012) – American Honda would like to extend our thanks to all of our 2012 Team Honda Muscle Milk motocross team members and sponsors. It has been a great year and we look forward to 2013. In particular we would like to thank Justin Brayton for his efforts in 2012. It was a difficult season for a number of teams this year due to injuries, but Brayton put in a strong effort all year long despite riding a number of races with an injury that would have sidelined some riders.

"Justin rode his heart out this season," said Honda Team Muscle Milk Manager Erik Kehoe. "Despite a lot of challenges this year, he really stepped it up and the team really appreciated his efforts. We wish him all the best as he moves on to the JGR team in 2013.”

Moments after Honda’s release went up on our site, JGR issued the news of Brayton rejoining the North Carolina team…

The JGRMX/Toyota/Yamaha Team is proud to be reunited with Justin Brayton, who rode for the team during the 2010 and 2011 racing seasons.  Brayton is back with Joe Gibbs Racing for at least the next two years.  "I am excited to be back, it's like a family at JGR and the bike is really good, I am looking forward to the Monster Energy Cup and the 2013 supercross and motocross seasons," said Brayton.  "Justin always gives 100% and takes great care of our sponsors, we are glad to welcome him back to the team," commented team owner, Coy Gibbs.

The next race for the JGRMX/Toyota/Yamaha Team is expected to be the Monster Energy Cup on October 20, 2012 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev.  SPEED will broadcast the action live starting at 10:00 p.m. (EST).  The 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship Series presented by Toyota begins Jan. 5 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif.
