Following the second moto, Travis Pastrana was waiting for Tomac to congratulate him on a job well done. We overhead TP saying to Tomac’s mom, “I just love watching him ride. He really shows he has heart out there and gives it his all.”
Pastrana wasn’t just there to watch the 250 and 450 racing action; he actually lost a bet to friend Ashley Fiolek after she won X Games a few years ago. Because of that, he had to wear this pink shirt in support of Fiolek. In true TP fashion, he had some fun with it and enjoyed every minute.
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett took another overall victory, extending his points lead in the 250 class. Baggett went 3-1 for the overall and had to battle for his win in the second moto where he passed Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen for the lead with only two laps to go in the race. Here, Baggett gets a hug from his mom.
Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen nearly won his first moto of the season at Southwick, as he led the second moto until the two-lap board came out. Once that happened, Roczen said he simply got tired and gave it his all. During the off-weekends before the race, Roczen returned home to Germany where he enjoyed some time with his friends and family and also raced a German National Championship race. At the race, Roczen won both motos by over 12 seconds.
Roczen also got a new haircut during the break. Better than his long flowing locks of before? You be the judge…
