Blake Baggett

Blake Baggett has done well at Thunder Valley in the past, so coming into this race, he was both prepared and confident.  He started the day of racing strong in qualifying, putting in the 6th fastest lap.  Despite having to line up for the gate drop twice due to a red flag for a downed rider causing a restart, Blake was unperturbed, rocketing out of the gate, straight to the first turn ahead of the pack, securing the holeshot.  He would end up sliding back to third, and toward the end of the race put in an admirable attempt to overcome 2nd, but to no avail.  He would ultimately finish moto 1 in 3rd place.

Blake Baggett

Blake Baggett started out the day of racing with the 4th fastest time of the day in qualifying, which would foreshadow his performance in the first moto.  He got on the gas right away, and shot out of the gate finding himself among the top ten riders early on in the race.  Blake then made his way from there up into the top 5, where he would hold position to finish 5th.  Unfortunately, moto two would not go as smoothly for #4.  Despite a great start, and nearly missing the holeshot, Blake would go down in the next corner with both him and his bike getting run over multiple times, tearing off his left grip.  But in true “El Chupacabra” fashion, Baggett picked up his bike, sans left grip, hopped on and never looked back.  He proceded to charge from dead last all the way up to 9th place by the end of the moto.  His 5-9 score would earn him a 7th overall, putting him 5th in championship points.

Blake Baggett

Blake Baggett was on top of his game in SLC!  He rocketed out of the gate in Heat 1, securing the holeshot and taking an early lead.  He would then fall back one position after a back-and-forth battle for the lead with Marvin Musquin.  “El Chupacabra” never gave up though, nipping at the heels of the Frenchmen till the end, and ultimately finishing the heat in 2nd place.  It was deja vu all over again as the gate dropped for the main event and Baggett shot off the line and into the lead, obtaining his 2nd holeshot of the night! A few laps into the main, he would lose the front end, causing Blake to do a handstand over the bars! Luckily, he was able to save it, and continued on in 2nd place.  With focus and determination, Baggett counted off the laps, and crossed the finish line in 3rd place, his fourth podium finish of the season! With only one race left, Blake goes into Las Vegas tied for 4th in the championship points!

“It was a good race,” said Baggett. “My starts were solid, and it felt good to grab that holeshot and to get back up on the podium. I’m ready for Vegas and to finish the season off strong with another podium.”
