HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (January 10, 2010) – The Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Team kicked off the 2010 AMA Supercross Championship Series last night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. As reported earlier, Josh Grant, the winner of the event last year was injured while practicing last Tuesday, and his status going into the event was uncertain. Josh was still very sore during the first practice, but was able to ride well enough to qualify for the night program. He elected to sit out the second practice to rest and prepare for the race. Grant rode through the pain and transferred to the main event directly out of his heat race, but made the decision not to race the main and risk further injury. He will continue to work closely with his doctors and the JGRMX athletic trainer to be prepared for the next round of the series. 
 
Justin Brayton, debuting his Yamaha YZ450F with the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Team for the first time in AMA Supercross qualified fifth in timed practice, and then transferred to the main out of his heat race. In the main Justin started around mid-pack and quickly moved up to sixth where he stayed for the first half of the race. A couple of small bobbles relegated him back to eighth at the checkers for a solid top-10 finish.    
 
The next round of the series will be on Jan. 16 in Phoenix, Ariz. at Chase Field. The original broadcast will air Jan. 17 on SPEED at 6:00 p.m. (EST).
