FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Camarillo, CA (June 28, 2016) – Team BTO Sport-KTM-WPS headed south for Round 5 of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at the fast Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN. Team rider Andrew Short carried momentum into his final appearance at Muddy Creek National, while Justin Brayton and Benny Bloss continued to impress with solid results.
Andrew Short looked smooth in qualifying, putting down the 14th fastest lap of the morning. Moto 1 had Short working overtime, as he would get caught up in a first turn crash. He would remount, and dig deep throughout the moto to finish 20th at the checkered flag. Short bounced back in the second moto, battling through the field and finished 14th at the line. His 20-14 score gave him 17th overall on the day.
“It was a tough day” Short said. “I got caught up in a first turn pileup, but battled back from that. My speed is there and I’m looking forward to next weekend at Redbud.”
Justin Brayton came into Muddy Creek refreshed and energized. He found the fast way around the unique track with the help of the Pirelli Scorpion MX tires to qualify 15th. He would launch out of the gate strong in moto one inside the top 15. From there Brayton moved forward, working his way through the field to finish 9th at the checkered flag. His momentum continued in moto 2, where he grabbed his ODI grips and a handful of throttle out of the gate, just missing out on the holeshot. He held strong at the front of the field early on, eventually finishing in 11th place. His 9-11 landed him 9th overall on the day.
“I rode well this weekend” Brayton said. “I had two solid starts and battling at the front both motos. My speed is there and it’s a step in the right direction. We will be ready to battle at the front at Redbud.”
Benny Bloss keeps improving each week, and Muddy Creek would be no different. After making a few adjustments in practice, Bloss posted the 16th fastest time of the morning. He would use the explosive power of his FMF Racing exhaust system to power up the start hill rounding the first turn inside the top twenty. A few mistakes early on had Bloss working hard up through the field. As Engine Ice kept his motor running at peak performance in the Tennessee heat, Bloss charged all the way up to 11th at the checkered flag. Moto 2 didn’t start well for Bloss, as major crash early on had him working his way from the back of the pack. With his never quit attitude, he continued to charge through the field to 23rd at the checkered flag. His 11-23 score landed him 16th overall on the day.
“It was a tough weekend” Bloss said. “I felt solid out there today, but a few mistakes had me working through the field both motos. We will get it figured out and come into Redbud on the gas.”
Team BTO Sports now heads to RedBud MX in Buchanan, MI for round 6 of the 2016 Pro Motocross Championship series.
Camarillo, CA (June 20, 2016) – After a week off, Mt. Morris welcomed Team BTO Sport-KTM-WPS for round 4 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship series at the historic High Point MX. Heavy rains earlier in the week made the track sticky as the riders took to the track Saturday morning for practice, but dried up leaving the track prime for racing. Team riders Andrew Short, Justin Brayton and Benny Bloss rode strong throughout the day on the chopped up track.
Andrew Short came in to High Point refreshed, as a strong start in moto 1 had him battling inside the top 20 early on. He did not slow down, charging through the field and working his way to a 12th place finish at the checkered flag. Short would come back in moto 2 on the gas, making quick passes early on inside the top 15. He would ride smart throughout the moto, taking the checkered flag in 14th place. His 12-14 moto score claimed him 12th on the day, his best overall this season.
“It was a good day overall” Short said. “I got a good start in the first moto and avoided everyone crashing out there. The track was gnarly, but I rode strong and stayed out of trouble all day. I’m looking forward to bringing this momentum into Tennessee next weekend.”
Justin Brayton’s day didn’t start off easy. His mid-pack start in the first moto had him battling deep within the field, colliding with another rider early on. That forced him to work double time, as he charged from the back of the 40 rider field for the entire moto to finish 17th. Brayton launched out of the gate in Moto 2 inside the front pack, utilizing his WP Factory Services suspension, strength and smooth riding style to secure 13th at the checkered flag. His 17-13 score landed him 14th overall for the day.
“It was rough this weekend” Brayton said. “I didn’t get the best start in the first moto and ended up going down. I worked my way through the pack, but had cut my finger in the crash and was hard to hang on. I’ll be good for next week, and will rebound at Tennessee.”
The rough High Point track suited Benny Bloss, putting down the 13th fastest time in the morning practice. He was unable to start the first moto, however, as he was suffering from a migraine headache that affected his vision leading up to the start. For Safety reasons, Bloss and the team decided it would be best for him to sit out the moto. His issue cleared up, and Bloss came out swinging in moto 2. There’s no quit in this kid! He was on the gas from the start, rounding the first turn inside the top twenty. He battled his way up through the field, taking the checkered flag in 16th. Even with his moto 1 misfortune, Bloss ended the day 19th overall.
“It wasn’t the best weekend” Bloss said. “The track suited my style and felt good in practice. While I had an issue in moto 1, I came back to ride strong and on the gas in the second moto. We will get it figured out and come into Tennessee ready.”
Team BTO Sports heads south to Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN for round 5 of the 2016 Pro Motocross Championship series this upcoming weekend
