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. Due to the crash, he would suffer damage to the controls of the bike, in which he had to enter the mechanics area for repairs. After the necessary repairs, he would continue and finished the night in 17th place. He moves back to 12th in the championship points.
“It was a frustrating night.” said Baggett, “I was fast on this track, but the track became an ice skating rink and it started biting a lot of us riders back in the main. It was just a tough end to the night.”
