Blake Baggett

The night started with Blake Baggett out in front as he grabbed the holeshot in his heat race and took the early race lead. Blake would have some issues on the track that slid him back into third position, where he took the checkered flag and a transfer spot to the main event. The #4 had his starts dialed and in the main event he shot out of the gate getting around the first turn in second place. But by the end of the first lap, he found himself in 4th place. Baggett made his move into third and with under ten minutes to go made the pass for second place. He then set his sights at the front and would attempt a pass for the lead with just a few laps to go, but to no avail. Blake stayed poised, hitting his lines and used solid riding to finish in 2nd place, his fourth podium of the season.

“It was a solid night ” said Baggett. “The starts were important tonight as the track was tight and technical which made hitting my marks every lap that much more difficult. I felt we had the win tonight, just came up a bit short. There’s still a lot of racing and still in this championship fight… “

Justin Bogle rode with confidence in his heat race, as a good start propelled him deep inside the top ten. Justin hit his marks every lap, finishing 7th, transferring straight to the main. He used a good jump out of the gate in the main event to start just outside the top ten. As the track broke down, Justin slid back finishing 15th at the checkered flag.

“It was a tough night,”said Bogle. “Tonight the track broke down fast and it was unfortunate with my gate pick I didn’t get the start I needed. We are still making progress every weekend and we will be prepared next weekend in Seattle.”
