TORRANCE, CA – June 20, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – American Honda Racing’s Josh Grant will make his return to AMA Motocross racing this weekend at the Budds Creek National in Mechanicsville, MD. Grant underwent knee surgery earlier in the year to repair the injury he sustained earlier in the Supercross series.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back out there and battling with everyone each week,” said Grant. “More than anything, I’m excited to get back on my CRF450R—I love riding my factory Honda and have had very little chance to race it this year. I’m ready to put my injury behind me and record some good results for the team. I haven’t rushed my recovery period; I’ve taken all the time I needed to fully recover. I’m lucky to have such a great group of people around me and to have the American Honda Racing team stick beside me, lending their full support the entire time. It will be great to get back to working with the team every weekend for the rest of the season.”
