Camarillo, CA (Jan.18, 2015) – Team BTO Sports headed back to Anaheim, CA for round three of the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Series at Angels Stadium of Anaheim. Riders Andrew Short and Justin Brayton came in prepared to run up front Saturday night, but it proved to be a tough night for both riders and team.

Andrew Short came in ready to continue his string of strong rides and posted the 19th fastest time of the day on the technical track. He was on the gas during his heat race, as he blasted out of the gate in front of the pack taking the holeshot. Short would battle tough up front, finishing 3rd and transferring to the main. Short would once again use the power of his FMF Racing 4.1 RCT exhaust system in the main event to start at the front of the field, taking the early lead. His race changed in an instant as he would go down hard in a technical rhythm section, ending his night.
“It’s not the way you want to end the night” said Short. “I hit the deck hard but I am at least healthy. The team is working hard and will come back to fight another day.”
Justin Brayton was on the gas at A2.
Justin Brayton came in ready to turn it up this weekend and found the fast line through the tough track, posting the 9th fastest time of the day. After finishing 8th in his heat race, Justin would go into the semi to qualify for the main event. He would fight strong throughout the race, putting himself in 4th place and a position to transfer into the main. A misstep in the treacherous whoops sent Justin down to the ground hard. He would walk off the track, but would not return for the rest of the night.
“It was tough tonight” said team manager Forrest Butler. “We are looking forward and will come back stronger next weekend.”
