During 450SX heat race 2, Davi Millsaps launched out of the gate to lead the field into the first turn. He used the advantage to build a sizable lead, and with Engine Ice providing the dependable horsepower every lap, Davi took the win and earned his spot in the main event. A mid-pack start in the main had Davi working double time as he moved his way through the field. He battled into the top ten, and by the end, Davi had finished the night in 9th place. After 3 rounds, Millsaps stands 7th in the championship point standings.
“Overall it was a good night.” said Millsaps, “It felt good to be out front and win my heat race. We are getting better every weekend and I’m ready to battle up front in the main next weekend in Glendale.”

Blake Baggett was on the throttle from the drop of the gate, rounding the first turn and taking second place in the heat right behind his teammate. Baggett looked solid every lap and his close finish carried him through to the main event. In the main, Blake rounded the first turn mid-pack and began working his way up the field. Baggett kept his composure, hitting his lines as his WP Factory Services suspension allowed him to attack the track every lap. He crossed the finish line in 10th place, taking the checkered flag right behind his teammate Millsaps. After round 3, Baggett moved up to 16th in the championship point standings.
“I felt good tonight.” said Baggett, “The track was my style and I rode well. We are making progress and look for another top ten finish next weekend in Glendale.”
