Monster Energy Supercross visited Petco Park in San Diego for the Military Appreciation Night. Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS riders rode great, with Blake Baggett scoring a second consecutive podium.

Blake Baggett #4 – 450SX

Baggett began the night ranked 7th in qualifying. After a great start in the heat, he worked his way up to 4th. In the main, Baggett managed to avoid the first-turn crash that took out other top riders. He was able to work his way through the pack, eventually making a pass for 3rd late in the race. It was his second podium this year, and he now sits 5th in championship points.

“It was a good night,” said Baggett. “The track was slick, and I charged all race to get 3rd tonight. It feels good to get back-to-back podiums. There are a lot of rounds left, so we’ll keep working for those two top spots.”

Benny Bloss #60 – 450SX

Bloss went into his heat with a great start, and he was able to fight for 7th, allowing him to transfer directly to the main event. In the main, he rode hard and finished in 12th.

“I feel great about my night,” said Bloss. “I have been struggling lately keeping the bike on two wheels, so to ride the whole day consistent and finish 12th is a big step forward. I leave San Diego in one piece, so I’m looking forward to next week and getting into the top 10.”

Dakota Alix #42 – 250SX West

Alix looked great in his heat race, getting up to 3rd at one point and ultimately finishing in 6th. In the main, Alix got a great start, nearly taking the holeshot. He dropped back a few positions in the first few laps, and a crash forced him to lose even more. However, he fought back and reclaimed several positions to finish the night in 14th.
