It was a successful night in Anaheim for the KTM brand as both of its factory teams came away with podium finishes at Round 3 of the 2020 AMA Supercross Championship in Southern California. In the 250SX West division, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Brandon Hartranft raced his way to a second-straight podium with another impressive third-place ride.

It was another solid day for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team as Brandon Hartranft made his second-career podium appearance on Saturday. Hartranft powered his KTM 250 SX-F to a top-five start in the Main Event, where he battled for the fifth-place position early on. Halfway through the 18-lap race, he made his move into fifth and from there he positioned himself just outside the podium battle. On the final lap, Hartranft capitalized on a mistake by another rider and from there he maintained his composure to ride his way to a third-place finish. Brandon Hartranft: “It feels just as good [to get on the podium] as last weekend, I am so happy. I’m starting to believe in myself a lot more. I definitely want to win – that’s the main goal – but I’m just going to take it step by step and make the weeks count.”
