The MXsteeze #21 With Josh Grant
Josh Grant’s rookie year came in 2004, and he rode his Amsoil Honda to tenth overall in the Motocross Lites series. Along the way, the eighteen-year-old badass racer earned three podium finishes. The following year was another consistent one, as he finished a solid eighth overall in the East Coast Lites Supercross series. His best finish of the series came at the physically grueling Daytona Supercross, where he battled to the very last corner to earn second place. Grant would close out the year with a seventh overall in the Motocross Lites division, once again competing with the Amsoil Honda satellite team. The 2006 season established Grant as a definite title threat. He would again choose the East Coast Lites series as his battleground, and would finish a respectable third overall.
Grant won the 2009 AMA Supercross season opener in Anaheim, Calif. The win was his first in the premier division, and gave the Muscle Milk/Toyota Team its first supercross victory. Grant went on to earn two additional podiums, fourth in series points, and top-ranked rookie status. Grant then podiumed at the opening round of the AMA Motocross Series. He won his first overall 450 Class motocross victory on July 4, 2009 at the Buchanan, Mich. round of the series. He podiumed again at the Washougal, Wash. round. While second in AMA Motocross Series points, Grant encountered injury while qualifying at X Games 15 during the Moto X competition. After fracturing his ankles, he attempted to race again at the Budd’s Creek round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series only three weeks after the injury. Grant ran as high as fourth, but two minor crashes ruined his chances to stay at the top of the series points so he sat out the remaining seven motos of the series. Even so, Grant was still sixth in series points for the year.
Grant currently made a huge switch and is now riding on Two Two Motorsports with his teammate Chad Reed and will continue to dominate into the 2015 season.
