Brandon Robinson took another big step last week at round 5 of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season to improve on his great finish to last season by taking the #44 USC Kawasaki/Hart Racing EX650 to a strong 2nd-place finish at the Lima Half-Mile.
BRob44, who ended the 2013 season as the 3rd-ranked rider in the nation with three wins on the season, also scored his second podium and third top-5 of the season at the Allen County Fairgrounds-hosted event, a track where in his last outing saw Robinson land on his head when a flat tire on the Werner-Springsteen Racing Kawasaki put him over the top and into cushion (mostly unhurt, thankfully) coming into turn 3 with just over five laps to go in 2012.
With the season still young and the series hitting the Hagerstown Speedway round today in Maryland, Robinson moved into the 4th-place spot in the overall standings.
In the shot above, Robinson works his way to the front on the #44 USC Kawasaki/Hart Racing/Hot Shot-sponsored mount after passing Stevie Bonsey on the #80 Zanotti Racing/Classic H-D-sponsored XR750 during heat race #2 at the Springfield Mile I round of the season on May 25.
You can check out what Robinson had to say about his stellar effort last week in Lima below, and we send a big thumbs up out to the former 2008 AMA Pro Flat Track Basic Twins Champion as he gets ready to improve on his 17th-place finish at last year's Hagerstown Half-Mile. Go get 'em man, ride fast and ride safe!
