Justin Brayton has been racing professionally for the past seven 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"!
For 2010 and 2011 Justin will be riding for the Joe Gibbs Racing team and competing in the 450 class for Supercross and motocross.
Justin is originally from Fort Dodge, Iowa, but resides in Huntersville, NC in order to take advantage of the JGR Race facilities and work closely with team members on honing the bike and his skills for the season. He is 25 years old and has plenty more years in Motocross. He is 5’10” and 160 lbs. which will suit him even better now that he's in the 450 class full time
