The celebrated Glen Helen Raceway of Buchanan, Michigan was the center of attraction last weekend as it hosted the sixth round of the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The sixth Motocross event of this season i.e. the Redbud National was an exuberant event which went down successfully last Saturday night. The stadium ran completely houseful and the crowd was absolutely mesmerized by the amazing performances delivered by some of the most talented racers of the world. While the 450cc class saw consecutive victories by Ryan Dungey of team Red Bull KTM who registered his fourth straight win of this season, the 250cc lites class category too saw similar straight victories. Following the triumph at the Budds Creek National, Blake Baggett of team Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki scored his second consecutive victory in the 250cc lites class category at the Redbud National.
The 2012 season of the Motocross Championship has turned out a very successful one so far for the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider. With his victory at the Redbud National, Baggett now has three wins under his belt in the 250cc lites class category. Three wins in a total of six matches played means a success rate of 50% for Baggett while there are still six more matches to be played in this season. This very statistic would really make Baggett and his team very proud of their current standings in the 2012 Motocross championship. Baggett came into Buchanan oozing with confidence gathered after his win at the Budds Creek National and undoubtedly, he was eyeing on his second straight victory at the Redbud National. His amazing performance and splendid racing skills helped him acquire his second consecutive victory. This was also his third win of this season.
In both the Moto matches, Blake Baggett kicked off his race from later down the pack but was able to acquire the lead in both the cases. He rode well in both the Moto matches and won both of them too. In the first Moto race, he finished the first lap at the 6th position but quickly shifted his gears to gain an amazing speed. He then charged forward and began overtaking one rider after another. By the end of the 5th lap, Baggett was at the 2nd position in the race. Later down the race, he was able to pull off the lead in the race to finally win it. In the second Moto match, Baggett got an early hold on the race and in no time he was at the leading position. He won the Moto-II match too and emerged as the clear winner of that event.
