(Madera, CA, March 28th, 2022) – The 12th round of the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series was held at Lumen field in Seattle, Washington. Twisted Tea/H.E.P. Suzuki presented by Progressive Insurance had a fantastic day on the track with a pair of top tens. Justin Bogle was on the gas with a 3rd place heat finish. He carried that momentum into the main event and finished 8th overall. Brandon Hartranft was not too far behind him in 10th overall and is inching closer to the top ten in series points for the 450-premiere class. Adam Enticknap continues to heal from a neck injury earlier in the series. He was not racing but was with the team doing sideline reporting for Supercross Live.
Justin Bogle #19: Very productive round in Seattle. Justin got a great start to his heat race and ran third the entire time. Bogle carried that momentum into the main event, got a decent start, and ran inside the top ten, for the entire 20 minute + 2 laps main event. He finished 8th overall, capping off one of his best performances yet to come this year.
“Better day in Seattle,” said Justin Bogle, “Heat race was good. I got a good start and ended up 3rd in the heat race. So, I got a good gate pick in the main event. I got a good start in the main. The first half of the main was good; I was riding well. I made a couple of mistakes and got a little tight. I struggled in the second half of the main. All things considered; we are making progress. We got through with another single-digit finish. The team is rallying behind me. I am excited, and we will keep testing during the week and improving.”
Brandon Hartranft #41: Another career day with a top 10 overall for the young 23-year-old 450-premiere class rider. Brandon got a decent start in his heat race and locked down a transfer position early in 6th place. After getting out to a bad start in the main event, Hartranft pushed the pace moving nine spots, from 19th place to inside the top ten. Brandon finished 10th overall and is inching closer to the top ten in series points.
“Pretty good round in Seattle,” said Brandon Hartranft. We were solid in practice and qualifying. I had an okay heat race; I got a decent gate pick in the main, but I got a bad start. I came from 19th to 10th; I rode my butt off. I am excited about this break and build for the next round!”
“Good night in Seattle,” said team manager Dustin Pipes. “The team is making progress, and the results are showing. The riders have been testing a lot during the week to try and find a better setup, and I think the team’s hard work is starting to show. The home stretch is setting up nicely for us to continue growing.”
