2008 AMA Pro Flat Track Pro Twins Champion Brandon 'BRob44' Robinson started off the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season with a bang earlier this month and was able to bring his TJ Burnett Farms-sponsored Honda home for a 4th-place and 2nd-place finish in the season-opening rounds at the Daytona Short Track.
Robinson, who had switched back to the TJ Burnett Farms team late last season after struggling early in the season on the USC/Hart Racing Kawasaki team, helped to repay his previous season boss by getting such a strong start to the new season. Robinson will campaign this year's Singles Series events aboard big man Burnett's superb Hondas, while he will campaign the Twins Series events as the new member of the Latus Motors/Castrol Oil Racing team headed up by former 2000 AMA Grand National Champion Joe Kopp.
In the shot above, BRob44 gasses it up on the #44 TJ Burnett Farms/USC Racing/James Hart Racing-sponsored Kawasaki KX450F during the final qualifying session at the Peoria TT during round 7 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season on August 11.
BRob has his work cut out for him in the Twins Series events this season, but no more than any of the other riders including Johnny Lewis and Kopp who have tried to get the Latus Motors Triumph up to snuff in the ultra competitive Rolling Thunder Show. In what will be the third year for the team, Robinson just could be the man to make the slogan 'third time's a charm' come true for the Northwest Territory-based team.
Check out Brandon's press release below as he fills us all in on testing before the Daytona rounds and how he got through Daytona with such a fine set of finishes to kick off the 2015 season with a big jump start. As always, we wish the tall man the best of luck this year and look forward to seeing him get the Latus Motors Triumph up on the podium and the TJ Burnett Farms Honda back in the winners circle again this year. Go get 'em guys!
