Thomas Brown is riding CST tires to a certified hot streak. Brown’s first ATVMX win of the year came shortly after news that he’ll ride for the US in this year’s Quadcross of European Nations (QXON).
At Saturday’s RedBud race, Round 9 of the ATVMX National Championship presented by CST Tires, Brown took third place in the first moto. However, as the next moto would show, he was just warming up. Despite a track made slick by heavy rain, Brown grabbed the lead in the moto’s first half and held it through the finish. The win gave the Tbrown84 Training/CST Tires rider his fourth trip to the podium so far this season; he’s currently third in points for the series.
Brown is one of three US riders who will defend Team USA’s QXON championship against world-class competition. QXON will feature a 25-minute moto during each day of the event. “I am super honored to be selected as a part of Team USA again. I am looking forward to heading across the big pond to defend our title in Denmark. We have a great team with Jeffrey [Rastrelli], Chad [Wienen] and myself. This should be an awesome race,” Brown said. QXON is scheduled for September 22-23 in Slagelse, Denmark.

CST congratulates Thomas Brown on his Round 9 ATVMX overall win, and wishes Brown and his teammates the best as they compete against some of the world’s best riders and bring home QXON gold once again.

CST’s Thomas Brown and Nick Gennusa both made the top five at the season opener of the ATV MX National Championship presented by CST Tires. Brown earned fourth place, with Gennusa in fifth at the race, held March 13 at Daytona International Speedway.
Going into the second round, Brown racked up 18 points toward his season total, and Gennusa accumulated 16. ATV MX presented by CST Tires’ Round 2, South of the Border, is scheduled for March 24-25 in Hamer, South Carolina.
CST thanks Thomas Brown and Nick Gennusa for an outstanding start to the season.
With a sponsorship roster that includes returning stars and newly signed champions, CST Tires continues to step up its game in the world of ATV and off-road motorcycle racing. The company has built on solid results from last season by recruiting a powerhouse line-up for 2018.
“We have a deep roster this year, and we know that all of these riders are fully capable of winning a championship on CST tires. We’re very confident about our prospects,” said Chris Meyer, marketing coordinator for CST Tires.
New riders include eight-time ATVMX champion Nick Gennusa, who will again contest that series’ Pro class, and Brycen Neal, who’s gunning for the GNCC Pro title after taking second overall last season. Michael Swift will ride for CST in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro, UTV Pro, and Ace classes, as well as competing in the Heartland Challenge. Swift’s GNCC competition in 4×4 Pro and UTV Pro will include fellow CST rider Kevin Trantham, who is also new to the company’s roster.
CST’s returning stars include nine-time WORCS champion Beau Baron, who will compete in WORCS Pro ATV and Pro SxS, as well as Quad Cross and the Big 6 series in 2018. Adam McGill, who rode CST to fifth place overall in GNCC’s Pro class and appeared on the podium seven times in 2017, will work to leave his competition in the dust in the GNCC, IXCR ATV Pro Overall, and WEXCR Pro Overall. No stranger to the ATVMX podium, Thomas Brown will compete in that series’ Pro class, plus Pont de Vaux and QXON.
Desert racer Cory Sappington will again compete in both Best in the Desert and the SCORE-International series. Like his new teammates Swift and Trantham, Dwight Pollard is scheduled to race in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro class. Pollard will also compete in the series’ XC3 SxS class, as well as the Heartland Challenge, Mid East, SORCS, and IXCR. Sean Bogdan will compete in GNCC UTV XC1 Pro, and Justin Wood will race the series’ 4×4 Senior A class.
Racing motorcycles for CST will be Mitch Anderson. Among Mitch’s accomplishments during the past year was a team victory at the John Burr 10 Hours of Glen Helen.
CST is proud to welcome all of its riders to its strongest ATV roster yet, and looks forward to cheering them on to victory throughout the year.
