Blake Baggett

Blake started off the day of racing qualifying with the 4th fastest time, and when it came time for the gates to drop for moto 1, he looked confident and ready.  He rocketed out off the line, and rounded the first corner just outside the top 10.  In a matter of only a few laps, Baggett would break past 10th place and then systematically pick up position after position, ultimately reaching 4th, before the checkered flag flew.

Rejuvenated from the week off from racing, Blake Baggett was riding fast and smooth early on in the day.  So fast and smooth in fact, he secured the fastest 450MX qualifier spot!  Unfortunately things would unravel for Blake early on in moto 1, tangling with a first turn pile up and going down right out of the gate.  He was able to remount his bike, and get on the gas to put the charge on from dead last.  Putting in fast laps he was able to cut through the field, working his way all the way into the top 5 before the checkered flag wove.

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.

By Blake Baggett’s performance at Hangtown, it’s no wonder he has been regarded as one of the favorites for the championship!  He came out of the gate in the first moto on the gas, and rounded the first turn inside the top 10.  He moved up several positions to finish in 7th place.  As the gates dropped in the second moto, Blake again shot off the line, this time starting the race outside the top ten.  Fear not, as in true “El Chupacabra” fashion, Blake put his head down and charged through position after position to break into the top 5, and ultimately finish the moto in 4th.  His 7-4 score would earn him a 5th overall.
