Baggett Vegas 2018

Blake Baggett

Blake Baggett came into Las Vegas ready to put a strong close to the season.  In his heat, he was able to get a good start and rode among the top five for the early part of the race.  By riding fast and consistently, he went on to make a few passes, to finish 3rd.  In the last main event of the year, Blake again timed the gate with precision and shot straight into 3rd place.  He would ride an exceptional race, riding smooth and hitting clean lines, maintaining  3rd all the way to the end.  This podium finish, Blakes fifth this year, placed him in 4th in the final championship points.

 

“It was a good race,” said Baggett. “I had good starts all night, and with the track being difficult, it helped being at the front. I’m happy with how I rode and to end the season on the podium.”

Blake Baggett entered into the Foxborough track willing and ready.  He squirted out of the gate in his first heat, just missing the holeshot.  He would go on to battle for the lead throughout the race, but ultimately lose a position, but still podium.  Baggett would get another great start in the main event that put him within the top five early on in the race.  He kept on charging, and would battle his way up to 4th place by the midpoint of the race.  Keeping his lines, and staying focused, he held off the competition, and crossed the line in that position.

Blake Baggett’s night started off on a high note with a great start in the first of the three races Saturday night in Indianapolis.  He would launch out of the line in 6th, the position he would ultimately cross the checkered flag in.  For main event two, he performed even better, as he was able to obtain the hole shot, and ride in the front of the pack the entire race before dropping some positions and finishing 5th.  In the last main event race of the night, it was deja vu all over again, as Blake again started up in the front.  Unfortunately, at around the mid-point of the race, he ran into an issue that had him fall back to the very end of the field.  But they don’t call him El Chupacabra for nothing!  He put his head down and with tenacity charged his way back through the field to finish just outside the top 10, taking home a 12th place.  His 6-5-12 score would place him in 8th overall for the night.
