4/16/2010 - Brayton Fights Through Thumb Injury at Houston SX


HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (April 11, 2010) – Each year since 1974, Houston, Tex. has hosted a round of the AMA Supercross Championship. Whether at the Astrodome, or more recently Reliant Stadium, the venue is rich in history. Retired multi-time AMA champion Mark Barnett maintains the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Team test tracks, he also happens to share the record for the most wins in Houston with the all-time winningest supercross rider, Jeremy McGrath (five each).


After a week off, Justin Brayton’s thumb injury had time to heal and was much better than it was in Jacksonville. Brayton looked strong all day and set some of the fastest laps during timed qualifying. Unfortunately, a lapped rider tangled with Justin during his heat race causing him to crash aggravating the injury. He was able to remount and still qualify directly from the heat race. Michael Byrne also transferred to the main event from his heat race. 


In the main event Brayton and Byrne started at the rear of the pack deep in traffic. After racing hard for 20 laps, at times with one another, they crossed the finish line in ninth and 14th respectively.
