The scene was different as round five of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship Series, headed to the Northen California city of Oakland and the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum for the season’s race this past Saturday. After fans were treated to the SoCal SuperTrucks show truck in the team pit area, Blake Baggett rode solid on the treacherous track to his first podium finish of the season.

The start of the night would see Blake Baggett charging out of the gate and around turn one inside the top 5 in his heat race. Blake stayed on point and battled for position, to cross the checkered flag in 6th place, more than enough to put him straight through to the Main. As the gates dropped on the Main Event, Baggett rocketed off the line and made it to turn one just behind Cole Seely, who secured the holeshot. He would go on to lose a couple positions early in the race, but by the half-way point make his way back up to 3rd, and putting his attention toward overtaking Ken Roczen for 2nd. BB4 would stay on the gas especially through the whoop section, allowing him to close the gap between him and 2nd place. Blake never let up, but couldn’t make the pass. He would finish the race in 3rd place, his first podium finish of the season, moving him up to 7th place in the championship points standings. That puts Blake Baggett only 9 points away from 4th place.
