Australian-based Penrite Honda has confirmed an expanded effort in Monster Energy Supercross for 2021, as the team has signed Justin Brayton for next year. Brayton has won four Australian Supercross titles during his tenure with the team.
The team, owned by Yarrive Konsky, made its debut in Monster Energy Supercross in 2020, fielding a 250SX West Region only team of Mitchell Oldenburg and Australian Luke Clout. It has not been announced if they will return to the team.
“We’ve always talked about doing something in America,” Brayton told MotoOnline. “We never knew for sure if we’d get the right support or if it could ever happen, but if there was ever a way to make it happen, we were going to do it. We’ve been working on it a long time and yeah, we’re going racing here in America and in Australia. We’ve got an awesome program put together and it works well for me, having some continuity with the same team. I’m excited about it.”
Brayton, 36, finished ninth in 2020 riding alongside Ken Roczen under the Honda HRC tent.
