Brandon Short has been with Next Level Sports Management since the summer of 2008. His primary role in the company is serving as the Public Relations Manager for all three major national motocross championships: Monster Energy Supercross, the AMA Arenacross Series and the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Prior to becoming involved in the motocross industry, Short gained valuable public relations experience as an intern at California Speedway in Fontana for three years. Additionally, he holds a strong lineage in motorsports thanks to his father Jim Short, a well-known former auto racing writer for the Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper.

Born and raised in Riverside, Short is a Southern California native, graduating from the University of Redlands in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. From 2006 to 2008, he attended the University of Redlands’ School of Education in pursuit of his Master’s in School Counseling while also working as the Graduate Assistant for the Sports Information Department. Upon the conclusion of his interim period at Redlands, Short joined the Next Level staff and has built a solid foundation of public relations experience and knowledge from the ground up. He has established strong relationships within the motocross community and thanks to his familiar name within motorsports media, continues to help push the level of exposure the sport receives on a national level.
