Baggett Still in Control
Baggett was on the hunt and, after an eighth place start, chased down the top seven and made some amazing passes to take the win in the first 250 moto. He was looking for a repeat victory in moto two, and it looked as if he was well on his way to another win after starting in the front of the pack, but a mid-race crash set him back to fourth. The 1-4 finish gave him third overall, and he currently leads the 250 class by 18 points.
