Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC came back to the West coast for round 12 of the 2019 AMA Supercross season at Century Link Field in Seattle, WA this past Saturday night.
Blake Baggett started the night as he has been lately, rocketing out of the gate in his heat race and leading the field around the first turn to grab the holeshot. Before long he found himself in a battle that between he and the top five riders going back and forth for position. Eventually, a slight bobble would cause him to slide him back a few spots, and Blake would cross the checkered flag in 5th place securing a transfer spot straight to the main. At the start of the main event, despite being stood up on the outside of turn one, Blake worked his way from the tail end of the top ten early in the race. He then set his sights forward and commenced a charge through the field to a 7th place finish as the checkered flag came out.
