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 finishes.

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 fifth.
