Getting a handle on the track early on, Blake Baggett posted the 4th fastest qualifying time of the day. On the gas from the moment the gate dropped, Baggett would just miss out on the holeshot, rounding the first turn in 3rd. He rode solid, finishing 3rd and transferring to the main event. Baggett woudn’t get the start he needed as he rounded the first turn mid-pack. He had worked his way up to 6th place by mid race when he went down after hitting a slick spot on the track.
