Caden Braswell extends stay at Factory GasGas


Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing will continue with 250MX rookie Caden Braswell through the next four rounds of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship, building upon experience gained in the early stages of the season as he works toward establishing himself inside the top 10.

  • Teenager Braswell to keep progressing onboard MC 250F Factory Edition
  • Fill-in deal has been extended through Round 8 of the 2023 season at Washougal!
  • 250MX class regular Pierce Brown still targeting a mid-season return

A former GASGAS-backed amateur standout and the 2022 Nicky Hayden AMA Motocross Horizon Award recipient, 19-year-old Braswell has progressively improved onboard the MC 250F Factory Edition outdoors and will now have the opportunity to further develop at the professional level.

Braswell opened his account outdoors with 19th overall at both Fox Raceway and Hangtown to begin the series, before making significant steps forward at Thunder Valley on his way to 12-12 moto scores and 12th overall.

Last weekend at High Point, which was initially slated to be his final appearance with the team, saw him improve further with 9-13 results and an encouraging 11th overall. He currently sits 14th position in the championship standings.

Caden Braswell: “I am very excited to continue with the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team. I’m looking forward to the next rounds and to continue improving my results.”

It’s expected that Braswell will be joined by Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing 250 class regular Pierce Brown in the coming weeks. There is the potential that Brown returns in time for RedBud’s fifth round of the season on July 1, but his status continues to remain day-to-day at this point.
