HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (July 27, 2014) – Washougal MX Park in Washougal, Wash. was host to the ninth of 12 rounds of the 2014 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Series. MAVTV aired the first moto live, and the second moto was broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network.
After setting the fastest time in the first practice, Josh Grant crashed in the second session and was advised by the Asterisk Mobile Medical staff that he should not race as a precaution. Justin Brayton gated perfectly in moto one pulling the holeshot and leading the 40 rider field. Early lap shuffling found Brayton in seventh position, which he held nearly the entire race. However, with just two laps to go he relinquished the spot finishing eighth.
Brayton’s YZ450F again bested the field to claim the start of moto two. He settled into eighth by lap four and held the position to the checkers. His eight – eight moto finishes gave him ninth overall for the day.
After a weekend off, Unadilla Sports Valley in New Berlin, N.Y. will host round 10 of the series on Aug. 9. Grant is expected to be on the gate, and Phillip Nicoletti will join Grant and Brayton for the Unadilla event. MAVTV will broadcast the first moto live at 1:00 p.m. (EST), and NBC will air the second moto live at 3:00 p.m. (EST). There will also be a mid-season update show on the NBC Sports Network at 11:00 p.m. (EST) Aug. 7.
