Blake Baggett Gets Back On The Box as Traxxas-backed Riders Stay Strong in Atlanta

Pro Circuit/Kawasaki/Traxxas riders Blake Baggett, Darryn Durham, and Broc Tickle rolled into Atlanta on Saturday night for the second round of Monster Energy Supercross Lites East, and the eighth round of Monster Energy Supercross.

Baggett totally bounced back from a disappointing previous race, by first winning his heat race, and then landing on the box in the runner-up spot in the Supercross Lites East Main. He is feeling more like himself after taking the second-place spot in Atlanta, and is ready to keep the momentum going this Saturday in St. Louis.

Durham garnered his first-ever podium finish in Monster Energy Supercross the previous week in Dallas. He rode steady and consistent in Atlanta, and earned a solid fifth, which keeps him in the second place spot in the Supercross Lites East Championship standings.

Tickle has been proving his determination all season in the Supercross Class. He hasn’t had the perfect season, but he has shown that he’s got the will power and strength to put in a good fight, in what has been one of the most competitive Supercross classes to date. He has stayed consistent in the Supercross Class point standings, and heads to St. Louis in 14th overall. 

The third round of Monster Energy Supercross Lites East, and the ninth round of Monster Energy Supercross will be at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis this Saturday, March 3. Durham heads to St. Louis in second overall, with 38 points in the Supercross Lites East Region, while Baggett is in 5th, with 28 points. Tickle continues on in the Supercross class in 14th, with 59 points.
