The gate dropped over the weekend of May 14-16 for the annual Muc-Off Justin Brayton Shootout presented by Fly Racing at Riverside Raceway in Winterset, Iowa, and each year this event continues to prove itself to be nothing but fun, friendly competition, and smiles across the board. Ryan Dungey and Damon Bradshaw made the trip out to get their fix of race weekend comradery, joining Justin Brayton to cheer on the 37 Open A and 33 250 A pros battling it out in the hunt for the Wiseco Pro Purse totaling-up to $13,800.

It wasn’t just the A-class claiming winnings, there was over $15k in amateur awards and prizes from companies across the industry, including the Wiseco On the Limiter award and the Rip & Rebuild award from our friends at ProX.
Of course, we aren’t just in it for the racing, we’re in it to enjoy the life with everyone who shares our passion! As such, the weekend also saw some 2-stroke warriors line up for some premix fun in the Wiseco Still Mixin’ 2-Stroke class, which was won on Sunday by young amateur prospect, Diesel Thomas, and on Saturday by Austin Weland. Austin also took home the Wiseco On the Limiter award through his other classes, earning him a fresh Wiseco piston kit for his machine.

The newest obstacle on the track that created the most buzz throughout the pits was the Wiseco Step-Up that saw over 1,000 racers tackle it with a smile under their helmets.
Race weekends are just as much as fun off the bike, and that was evident when beanbags started flying at the Wiseco Bags Tournament Friday night where over 25 teams entered for some pre-race hangs and friendly competition.
Adding to the fun was also the Storm Lake Honda Hot Lap Challenge which awarded the winner a new Honda CRF125F, pit bike racing put on by Race Tech, and even a pull-start bike race from Flyin’ Ryan’s Mini Bikes.
Once the dust settled, Marshal Weltin earned the most money riding his dirt bike, taking wins in five out the eight motos he raced across the 250 A and Open A classes. Zack Williams and Cody Williams put down notable performances in the 250 A class as well, finding themselves to be frequent podium visitors.
