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.”
