Budd’s Creek Results
    
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (June 20, 2010) – Budd’s Creek MX Park in Mechanicsville, Md. was host to round four of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Budd’s Creek is rich in racing history. The facility has held a round of the AMA Motocross Championship for 17 years, as well as hosting both a round of the world championship Grand Prix Series and a Motocross of Nations event. A lesser known element of Budd’s Creek history is that J.D. Gibbs raced several amateur events there in the early nineties with Coy and Joe Gibbs, who was the head coach of the Washington Redskins at the time supporting his efforts. Almost 20 years since J.D. competed at the track, Joe Gibbs, now a Pro Football Hall of Fame coach found himself back at the track supporting his younger son’s Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX professional motocross team while J.D. was in Sonoma Valley, Calif. overseeing the Gibbs’ three-time Sprint Cup Championship NASCAR team.
 
Josh Grant, who came to Budd’s Creek last season and put in an inspiring effort with two severely injured ankles arrived fit and healthy. Justin Brayton continues to recover from his recent injuries and is nearly back to full health. Grant and Brayton started the first moto just outside of the top-10. Within the first lap Grant had moved up to eighth with Brayton in 11th. Over the course of the following 30 minutes Grant would make his way to fifth with Brayton claiming 10th.
 
The second moto start was almost an exact replay of the first, with both riders just outside of the top-10. Brayton settled into the pace in 10th position, while Grant started a charge that would bring him to fourth. With two laps to go Grant was all over the rear wheel of the third-place rider, Ben Townley. The two riders had the crowd’s full attention as they battled for the final step on the podium. Riding just inches apart from one another and nearly colliding several times Grant made the pass with just over a lap remaining. Townley however re-grouped and managed to take the position back on the last lap. Grant ended the day with five – four moto scores for fourth overall. He retains sixth place in series points. Brayton put in consistent 10 – 10 finishes for 10th overall.   
 
SPEED broadcast the action from Budd’s Creek last night (same day coverage) at 9:00 p.m. (EST). The next race of the series will be June 26 at Thunder Valley Raceway in Lakewood, Colo. The original broadcast from Lakewood will be June 26 at 11:00 p.m. (EST) on SPEED.
