ANAHEIM 2 RACE REPORT
Round three of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross season headed back to Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA for A2. The rain held off for Saturday night’s race, and with Bubba Burger‘s grilling for team fans in the pit area, Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS riders Davi Millsaps and Blake Baggett scored a 1-2 finish in their heat race, and a pair of top ten finishes in the main event.
Blake Baggett was on the throttle from the drop of the gate, rounding the first turn and taking second place in the heat right behind his teammate. Baggett looked solid every lap and his close finish carried him through to the main event. In the main, Blake rounded the first turn mid-pack and began working his way up the field. Baggett kept his composure, hitting his lines as his WP Factory Services suspension allowed him to attack the track every lap. He crossed the finish line in 10th place, taking the checkered flag right behind his teammate Millsaps. After round 3, Baggett moved up to 16th in the championship point standings.
“I felt good tonight.” said Baggett, “The track was my style and I rode well. We are making progress and look for another top ten finish next weekend in Glendale.”
Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS will head to Glendale, AZ for round four of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series.
