Bluffdale, UT – OGIO congratulates Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/ Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett on his first win of the season at the Daytona Supercross at Daytona International Speedway. Baggett’s win also moved him into second place in the championship point’s battle.
“Winning last year was amazing, but it was almost over-shadowed by people saying I only won because everyone crashed,” said Baggett. “This win felt so good and I think I proved that I am here to win a championship. I want to keep doing what I’m doing because I know its working. I’ll be looking for another win next week.”
Last week’s winner Dean Wilson had a night he’d rather forget after a mid pack start and going down on the second lap. Wilson dug deep and finished the night off with an eighth place.
“I am not very happy because I want to win and know that I can win,” said Wilson. “I just made a few mistakes that cost me. I need to make sure I get a good start so I don’t put myself in a bad position right from the beginning of the race. I am very motivated to come out strong in Indianapolis.”
Look for Baggett and Wilson back on the podium this weekend in Indy.
