Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team Salt Lake City Results

Utah calls itself the “State of Sport,” being home to snowboarding, skiing, Monster Energy AMA Supercross, and for the first time Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross this summer. The first supercross was held at Rice-Eccles Stadium April 28, 2001. The series skipped the State of Sport from 2005 – 2008 returning in 2009. With its scenic mountainous setting, weather has been an issue at the open air event in the past, once the track had to be covered due to a late spring snow storm. This year the weather was perfect, sunny with a high of 72 degrees and zero chance of rain. 43,149 fans were in attendance and SPEED broadcast the action live.

Justin Brayton transferred directly to the main event from heat race one. In the main Brayton gated well and began the race in podium contention running third in the early laps. As the field began to settle in Brayton was comfortably in sixth position. He remained in sixth without incident to the checkers.

With just one Monster Energy AMA Supercross event left on the schedule the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team turns its attention to the upcoming Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Series. Josh Grant is riding again after recovering from shoulder surgery and will join Brayton this week at the team test facility to fine tune engine and suspension settings for the opening round of the outdoor series on May 18 in Sacramento, Calif. at the 45th annual Hangtown Classic.

The final round of the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship will be on May 4 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev. Supercross Live will begin streaming from Las Vegas at 5:00 p.m. (EST) on SPEED will air all of the action live starting at 9:30 p.m. (EST).
