It was a historic night for Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC as round 13 of the 2019 AMA Supercross season made its first visit to Nashville, TN and Nissan Stadium this past Saturday night. It would be another top ten night for the team, with Blake Baggett earning his fifth podium of the season and Justin Bogle finishing inside the top ten for the second week in a row.
The night started with Blake Baggett inside the top five as he got the jump out of the gate and led the field into the first turn. After falling back a few places, he soon found himself deep in a battle for position as he worked his way to the front. Keeping the pressure on, Blake finished 5th to transfer straight to the main. The #4 timed the gate perfectly in the main event, getting to the first turn inside the top five. Blake didn’t wasted no time moving his way to the front, as he would stalk Cooper Webb for several laps before making the pass into second place. He kept his composure on the slippery Nashville track and took the checkered flag in 2nd place, earning his fifth podium of the season.
“I felt good tonight,” said Baggett. “The track was tough tonight and my starts helped me to be up front. I felt we could have battled for the win tonight, just ran out of time. We are still in this and looking forward to Denver next week and grabbing that second win.”
Justin Bogle had the flow of the Nashville track as he launched out of the gate and found himself battling inside the top five early in the race. He put in a charge in late in the race, breaking into the top three taking 3rd at the checkered flag. In the main event, Justin would round the first turn outside the top fifteen. Bogle clicked it up a gear and put in a hard charge through the field pushing his way into the top ten by the middle of the race. He would hit his lines, riding strong to finish the night in 9th place.
“I’m happy with tonight’s ride,” said Bogle. “I felt good all day and I was having fun on the track tonight. I didn’t get the start I needed in the main, but I was able to race into the top ten. We are still making progress and am ready for another top ten in Denver next week.”
Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC now travels to the mile high city of Denver, CO for round 15 of the 2019 AMA Supercross Series.
