Brandon Robinson and the TJ Burnett Farms/USC/James Hart Racing Kawasaki team fought the good fight throughout the day at round 3 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season at the Stockton Half-Mile on May 11, good enough for a 6th-place finish in the National main, while holding on to the lead in the overall points championship.
The southern Illinois based team worked through adversity throughout the day with bike set-up, gearing and electrical issues on the team's EX650-based Twins Series mounts, and by the end of what was described as a 'very long day' by team owner TJ Burnett, BRob44 had worked his way into the top-6 after getting a poor start in the 25-lap National main held at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds last Saturday.
With round 4 of the season scheduled for the Springfield Mile I round on May 26, the team is ready to get settled into the meat of the 2013 season ahead.
In the shot above, Robinson walks alongside his bike as team owner Bill Werner rolls the #44 Werner-Springsteen Monster Energy Kawasaki out for rider intros at round 4 of the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season at the Springfield Mile I event, with co-owner and former 3-Time AMA Grand National Champion Jay Springsteen bringing up the rear.
The TJ Burnett Farms/USC/James Hart Racing Kawasaki EX650 Twins Series machines of then-rider Briar Bauman await the action ahead on the track during last season's round 4 at the Springfield Mile I at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, while team crew chief and head wrench, James Hart, talks with one of the team members.
Robinson's part-time team mate, JD Beach #95, will join the team next weekend at round 4 of the 2013 season on May 26. Bauman is reportedly going to be riding for the Werner team at Springfield after splitting from the TJ Burnett Kawasaki team before mid-season of last year.

Unfortunately, the Steve Nace All-Star event originally scheduled to run in Little Rock, AR., has been canceled due to rain for this Saturday, May 18, so the team will take a needed rest before Springfield.
