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

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.”

Blake Baggett

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.
