BAGGETT 3rd overall after Round 4

O’NEAL’s Blake Baggett placed 4th at the Muddy Creek and 3rd at the Lakewood National. These finishes kept the 450 Motocross rookie squarely in the championship hunt. He’s ranked third in the series standings, just three points out of second Ken Roczen.

Round 3 | Lakewood

Baggett went 4-3 in the Lakewood motos earning his first-career podium in the AMA Pro 450 Motocross Championship in only his third race on the 450s for the series rookie.
“It was definitely a good week,” Baggett said. “Practice went well, got a fourth in the first moto and then in the second moto I was fortunate enough to get a little bit of a gift when the leader went down and I was able to finish third. I’m just plugging away and each week is getting better and better. I got third overall, so my first podium on the 450. I’m just excited to keep improving and I’m looking forward to next weekend.” O'NEAL team rider BLAKE BAGGETT TAKES FOURTH AT MUDDY CREEK MOTOCROSS

Round 4 | Muddy Creed

Baggett raced his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 to a 5-3 at Muddy Creek to score a fourth overall.
“I had a tough first moto,” admitted Baggett. “I got a bad start and had to come through the pack and was only able to make it to fifth. I got a great start in that second moto. I’m hoping to carry that forward and learn from that. O'NEAL team rider BLAKE BAGGETT TAKES FOURTH AT MUDDY CREEK MOTOCROSS “I’m starting to figure things out. We’re trying to make the bike a little bit easier for me to ride. I’m a small dude, so when the bike kicks around it feels worse than it really is. I’ve just got to get used to that feeling and get better and better each week. I’ve got to give it up to the whole Yoshimura Suzuki team for giving me such a great bike.”
Yoshimura Suzuki will be back in action in the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship next Saturday, June 13, as the series moves to the legendary UPMC Sports Medicine High Point National from High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania.
