Corona, CA, (April 2, 2012) – Nearly 50,000 fans were on hand inside Houston’s Reliant Stadium on Saturday, for another action-packed round of Monster Energy Supercross. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle earned his fourth top-10 finish in-a-row in the Supercross Class, while teammate Blake Baggett got back to work in the Supercross Lites East Region and returned on the podium after a few rough weeks laden with misfortune. Darryn Durham had a tough time at Reliant Stadium, and spent the majority of the night fighting for points.
Baggett came out swinging in Houston. He posted the fastest practice times of the night in the Supercross Lites East Region, and possessed a noticeably different confidence in his riding as the night progressed. He has suffered from a self-professed frustrating season thus far, but seemed to turn things around in Houston. His newfound confidence earned him a solid third in the Supercross Lites East Main Event.
Tickle’s recent consistency stayed true in Houston. He ended the night with a career-best seventh-place effort and his fourth straight top-10 finish in the premier Supercross Class.
