Interview: Muscle Milk Honda’s Justin Brayton

Shan Moore | May 3, 2012
Justin Brayton interview from Cycle News Issue 17.

Justin Brayton didn’t take the usual path to get to the big leagues like most of his peers. The quiet and well-mannered Brayton pretty much bypassed the usual path through the amateur ranks but instead learned his trade on the cramped and rowdy courses of the AMA Arenacross Series, a series that has become sort of a “minor league” for young racers to groom themselves for the premier Supercross Championship.

Through a lot of hard work and dedication, Brayton has matured into one of the sport’s top riders and, not only is he fast, he’s also known as one of the best-fit riders on the circuit, and he readily admits that his conditioning is the main key to his success.

After the 2011 season, Brayton, as well as team title sponsor Muscle Milk, was lured away from the Joe Gibbs Racing/Yamaha Team by the factory Honda team, a team he’s dreamed about being on since he was a kid growing up in Iowa.
