Blake Baggett showed great speed right out of the gate, as he navigated the first turn inside the top five. Unfortunately, his moto came to a stop one lap later when the deep mud swallowed up his bike and forced him off. After getting his bike free and stopping in the mechanics area, Baggett re-entered the race at the very end of the field. Blake then put the charge on in the tricky conditions to work his way up to 16th by the time the checkered flag flew.
