Blake rode well at Muddy Creek, TN with 1-3 moto finishes, good enough for second overall on the day and making up valuable series points.
Baggett made an incredible last lap pass on the face of the finish line jump to win the first moto. A crash in the second moto kept him from the top spot, but still on the podium.
