Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS’s Blake Baggett claimed his first 450SX class main event win at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. He started near the front, coming around the first lap of the main event in fourth and maintained that position until a crash by Smartop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts/Honda’s Malcolm Stewart resulted in a red flag and a staggered restart. After the race resumed, he reached second place just a few laps later and was able to challenge and pass Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson for the lead, and open a gap on him until the checkered flag flew.

“I’ve had weekends when I could run with those guys, and with Kenny [Roczen] as well, and then some weekends they just leave me in the dust,” Baggett said. “So, it feels good to finally get my whole program together and be able to run with those guys. I’ve just got to keep this rolling. It hasn’t hit me yet that I finally got a 450 win.”

Jason Anderson

Anderson challenged Roczen for the lead after the restart and tagged the Honda rider’s front wheel when passing him, causing Roczen to go down. Anderson was later passed by Baggett and settled for second place in Glendale, a dramatic improvement from his underwhelming 14th-place finish at Anaheim 1.

“Honestly, I don’t think that’s how you race,” Anderson said. “I was a little overly aggressive and I was kind of embarrassed after the whole incident happened. I just want to apologize, but hopefully the next race I’ll be able to not do something like that and race straight-up. I just feel really bad. We’re going to come out and have clean battles the rest of the year.”

Ken Roczen

Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot in the main event and led until after the restart, where he was passed by a few riders after being taken down by Anderson. The German rider remounted his CRF450R to finish third place and take over the point lead heading into Anaheim 2.

“Before the restart, I got a great start; I pulled the holeshot and I was just really focused and pulling away a little bit,” Roczen said. “Then we got the staggered start, and they put all of us kind of close together again, and Jason [Anderson] drove there to the inside and took me down. I’m not too happy about it, but I bounced back at least and came back to the podium, so that was super good.”
