Justin Brayton doesn’t have a factory Honda ride, but he has the next best thing—a working relationship with Team Honda to get him all the good parts. It is a proven formula for the 2018 Daytona Supercross winner—all the good parts and none of the pressure of being on the corporate Honda team. You might wonder why when Roczen and Seely got hurt that Justin wasn’t moved up to the big CRF team. The answer is simple. Justin is all that the Smart Top team has and if Honda stole Brayton away from them, they wouldn’t be doing justice to the sponsors who signed on to help the Smart Top team. This is the same reason why KTM doesn’t take Blake Baggett away from Rocky Mountain MC/ATV team to fill Broc Tickle’s spot for the AMA Nationals.
