Justin Brayton Wins Round Three of Australasian Supercross
   
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Oct. 31, 2010) – Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Team rider Justin Brayton  won the third round of the 2010 Australasian Supercross Series at Aurora Stadium in Launceston, Tasmania. The event featured a Survival format consisting of four seven-lap sprints with the last five riders eliminated after each race, making the final a head-to-head duel between the final five. 
 
Brayton, who was racing the series for the last time before returning home, was determined to leave Australia with a win after earning podium finishes in the two prior rounds. He set the fastest qualifying time and went on to win three of the four finals, with last one determining the night’s overall positions. In the final it was fellow American and former Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Team rider Josh Hansen with the early lead. Brayton stalked Hansen making his move just after the halfway point on lap four. He went on to win unchallenged with a 2.365 second margin of victory.      
 
"I am excited to go out on top, but it`s a little bittersweet because I would like to stay and race the whole series. I have had such a good time here in Australia and I really hope I can come back and compete here again next year. I really want to thank the team at (the Australasian) Super X for bringing me out here and for putting on such good events as well as Craig Dack and his team for making me feel right at home," said Brayton.
 
The next race for Brayton will be the 25th Annual International Supercross Geneva at the Palexpo in La Voie de Moens, Geneva on Dec. 4 – 5. Davi Millsaps, Brayton’s new teammate has been adapting very well to the Yamaha YZ450F and may elect to race in Geneva as well to test his readiness for the opening round of the AMA Supercross Championship on Jan. 8, 2011 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif.
