The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross riders returned to the West Coast on Saturday for round nine in Washougal, Washington. JGRMX rider Justin Brayton proved how good is he out of the gate by claiming the Holeshot Award in both motos. Meanwhile, BTO Sports KTM’s Andrew Short was the highest-finishing Galfer USA rider, taking fifth in the 450 class.
JGRMX suffered an early setback when Josh Grant crashed in the second practice session. The medical staff advised him not to compete, leaving Justin Brayton to carry the team’s banner in the races. Brayton got an outstanding start in both motos, earning the Motosport.com Holeshot Award twice in one day on his No. 10 Yamaha YZ450F. Brayton was unable to hold onto the lead, eventually finishing eighth in both races. He concluded the day with ninth overall.
Andrew Short finished fifth after earning sixth and fifth in his motos on the No. 29 BTO Sports KTM 450 SX-F. It is Short’s third fifth-place finish of the season, and the spot remains his highest to date.
Matt Goerke, on his No. 44 BTO Sports KTM, ended up with 14th after earning 12th and 17th in his motos.
Rockstar Energy Racing had some 250 success thanks to Joey Savatgy, who was sixth for the day on the No. 43 KTM 250 SX-F. Savatgy earned the spot after finishing sixth and seventh in his motos.
Unfortunately, the day turned out very differently for points contender and Rockstar teammate Jason Anderson. He was challenging for third in the first moto when a big crash on the No. 17 KTM dropped him out of contention.
