Monday Kickstart Presented by One Industries – Daytona SX

Racing at the Daytona Supercross by Honda is in the record books, and the action we saw at the legendary speedway was exciting, to say the least. The race was broadcast live on Speed for all to enjoy, but here’s some of the stuff that happened behind the scenes. Enjoy…

The pits at Daytona were a little bit different from any of the rounds so far this season. With the race being held inside the Daytona Speedway, all the teams set up shop inside these garages.

Since the beginning of the season, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Blake Baggett has been constantly improving on his results. Only three rounds into the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites series, Baggett found the top spot on the podium. After winning the first heat of the night, Baggett grabbed the holeshot in the main, and checked out. It was a solid ride from the Pro Circuit rider, and with 65 points, he is now only four points behind Geico Powersport Honda's Justin Barcia.

Daytona marked the second SX Lites main event win for the likable rider.
Not only was it a big night for Blake, it was a huge night for his family, too. Moments after the race, Blake's dad was already on the phone and spreading the news.

This picture doesn't do any justice, but throughout the day everyone would jump into the wall and double over. During his heat race, San Manuel/Red Bull/Yamaha's James Stewart had the crowd floored when he completely jumped over the wall.
