Blake Baggett started out the morning by setting the 5th fastest lap in practice, then timed the gate perfectly in moto one, leading the field into the first turn to grab the holeshot. Early on in the race he would then find himself under attack from the rest of the riders, and shuffled back to 2nd. Then after a pass by Anderson he dropped down to 3rd. Blake fought back, passing Anderson for 2nd and then ran Roczen down quickly to battle for the lead as they headed into the third lap.  Blake would run into something in the track headed into turn one that was so solid, it bent his front wheel, and more forcing him to stop for a front wheel change in the pits.  Unfortunately, he jammed his throttle wrist in the impact as well.  He would go out and race Moto 2, but the pain in his wrist from the first moto crash proved too much to stay with the lead pack.  Blake would continue till the end to grab what will be critical championship points come the end of the season.

As the gate dropped for moto one, Blake Baggett shot off the line to round the first turn just outside the top five. He then wasted no time making the move for 5th place. Blake kept the charge and as the rain started to come down, he would slide back one spot taking the checkered flag in 6th. The rain didn’t stop for moto two, but Blake stayed on the throttle at the start and finished lap one inside the front pack. After slipping back outside the top ten mid-race due to worsening track conditions, Blake navigated the muddy track fighting his way to 10th place at the checkered flag, earning 8th overall for the day.

He would ride with intensity, only sliding back a few spots to finish third and transfer straight to the main event. The #4 again had a solid jump out of the gate, rounding the first turn inside the top five.

Blake Baggett got a great start in his heat, as he lead the field into turn one and rounded the first turn in 3rd place. Blake held off the riders behind him, to cross the finish line in 3rd place. Blake started the main event inside the top five and moved into 4th in the first few laps. He would ride a solid race, working his way into second place by mid-way through the laps. Blake made a mistake and went down late in the race, but quickly remounted, sliding back one spot to take the checkered flag in 4th place. Going into the last round, Blake holds 5th place in championship points.

“I rode well tonight” said Baggett. “I felt good tonight. The track was a bit tricky and I just made a little mistake that cost me a podium spot. I’m looking forward to finishing the season strong next week in Las Vegas.”

Justin Bogle started his heat race with a launch out of the gate to round the first turn in 2nd place. From the beginning of the race, Justin would ride solidly as he put pressure on race leader Eli Tomac, eventually forcing a mistake to take over the lead. Leading the field, Justin pulled a gap and took the checkered flag for his second heat race win of the season. He got another good start in the main event, but collided with another rider in the first turn, collecting a hard stinger to his hand. He went down soon after while still bunched up in the pack, damaging his bike too much to continue. It was an unfortunate series of events that caused the end of Justin’s race, since he was mentally ready for a podium coming off his second straight heat race win.

“Wasn’t the night I expected,” said Bogle. “ I was feeling it tonight and felt good to get my second heat race win of the season. It was unfortunate how my main went, as I felt I could have been up there battling for a podium spot. I’m looking forward to Las Vegas and ending the season on a high note.”
