Justin Brayton will spearhead the new Muc-Off Honda team in the AMA Supercross series. Team Muc-Off Honda, previously known as Penrite Honda, is run by Australian Yarrive Konsky and will be competing in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross as well as select European rounds during 2021.
Heading up the team is four times Australian SX champion and Supercross veteran Justin Brayton who will compete in the 450SX class on the new 2021 CRF 450R. Brayton, who finished 12 times in the top 10 during the 2020 season is considered to be the most consistent rider in the prolific series. 2021 will be Brayton’s 18th year as a professional motocross/supercross racer. In 2018 he achieved a career best where he won the main event in Daytona onboard a CRF 450R.
Mitchell Oldenburg will also be returning to the team in 2021 where he will be riding the CRF 250 alongside new teammate Mitchell Harrison. Harrison returns to the American race series after a brief stint racing in the FIM World Motocross Championship in the MX2 class.
“When I started the company, it was a dream of mine to be working at the pinnacle levels of motorsport so I am pumped that we are at the point where we are now title sponsors of an exciting Supercross team in such a dynamic and globally admired series. We look forward to working with the Muc-Off Honda team in developing new and exciting products, as well as supporting them in their mission to be a leading player in the sport. To see the brand with so much presence at this level of racing, makes me very proud and this I know is shared throughout the whole team at Muc-Off”. – Alex Trimnell, CEO at Muc-Off
