Justin Brayton has been racing professionally for the past nine years.  He began his motocross career in Arenacross at the age of 18, and quickly demonstrated his potential by becoming the Arenacross Series’ Rookie of the Year in the 2002 - 2003 season.  In 2003 - 2004, he lived up to his potential by securing Fourth overall.  In the 2004 - 2005 season, he was slated to compete for the championship, but incurred an injury that had him sitting out virtually all of 2005. 

 

In 2006, he secured a ride with a Supercross team and competed in the Supercross Lites class.  This was his first full year riding Supercross.  He received Twelfth overall, increasing his performances throughout the season, and ending the season with a Ninth in the East/West shootout (Top twenty riders from both coasts race together).

 

In 2008 and 2009 Justin then moved onto the MDK/KTM Team.  Justin began racing in the lites class and then at the end of the 2009 lites season he moved into the 450 class for motocross.  He progressed through the season and ended up 7th overall for the series.  The highlight of his season was a moto WIN at Steel City.

 

During the winter of 2009 Justin competed and won the Bercy Supercross and was crowned the "King of Bercy"!

 

In 2010 and 2011 Justin rode for the Joe Gibbs Racing team and competed in the 450 class for Supercross and motocross. In 2010 Justin finished as high as 3rd placing him on the Supercross Podium. In the main events for Supercross he averaged a seventh place finished. In motocross Justin finished on the podium at Steel City, PA and maintained an average of eleventh place finish while battling injuries during the series. 2011 Supercross began with a bang with Justin winning the first heat race of the year at Anaheim!  He finished as high as fourth place but struggled with nagging injuries.  Justin started the Motocross season at Thunder Valley in June and managed to average a seventh place finish for the year with his best finish a fourth place at Southwick.
