After finishing 11th in the overall AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Lucas Oil point standings, AMA Pro Flat Track rider Brandon Robinson will be looking to climb up into the top-10 for 2013. However, the Pennsylvanian product will be doing so under a new team name; Burnett Farms/USC Racing. Title sponsor Gerry Booher recently confirmed that the switch from Werner Springsteen Monster Energy Kawasaki to Burnett Farms/USC Racing will be a welcome one. In addition, Burnett Farms' TJ Burnett is excited about bringing Robinson onboard for the 2013 season.
In 2012, Robinson didn’t account for any wins but did find himself finishing in the top-10 on six different occasions. Robinson’s best performance of the season came at the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ Indy Mile where he rode his Kawasaki to a second place finish. That race seemed to be the exactly the jumpstart he needed as he finished in the top-10 in each of the next three races that followed.
Robinson is a young talent with what seems like an unlimited supply of potential. He and his team expect to be a real threat to the other riders on the circuit and look to compete at the highest level in 2013. GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing rider JD Beach, who rode for RoadRace Factory/Red Bull in 2012 GoPro Daytona SportBike competition, will join Robinson in non-conflicting rounds on the USC Racing stable.
