MEDFORD, OR
– Motorcycle Superstore/Bell support rider Justin Brayton had the crowd on their feet as he held off the top Supercross riders in the world, eventually landing on the podium with a solid second place finish.

Brayton grabbed the lead out of the gate and held it for 14 of the 20 laps before three-time Supercross champion Ryan Villopoto could make the pass for first and the eventual win. It wasn’t an easy win, though, for Villopoto as Brayton pushed back hard, showing Villopoto his front wheel on the last lap and almost taking back the lead.
