Payson, UT (Mar.9, 2020) – The world center of racing was the stage this past Saturday night as Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS traveled to Daytona, FL and Daytona International Speedway for round ten of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series. Joining team rider Blake Baggett under the tent was Benny Bloss, who makes his return to the team while filling in for Justin Bogle for the remainder of the Supercross season.
Blake Baggett looked at home on the Daytona track during the afternoon practice sessions, posting the 6th fastest time of the day. Blake used that advantage in his heat race, where he launched off the gate and rounded the first lap inside the top ten. Attacking the track, he moved himself just outside the top five, taking the checkered flag in 6th place. In the main event, Blake would get pushed wide around the start, and catching his footpeg on a tuffblock that would send him to the ground taking a blow to his shoulder, effectively ending his night.
The team and Blake will issue a statement this Thursday on his condition and his ability to line up at Indianapolis this weekend.
Making his return to the team for the remainder of supercross, Benny Bloss looked as if he picked up where he left off last year, posting the 8th fastest time of the day. In his heat, Benny got off the gate strong and rounded the first turn right behind his teammate inside the top ten. Benny kept the pace, hitting his marks consistently finishing 7th. In the main, a good start for Benny allowed him to run just outside the top ten for the full length of the main, ending the night in 12th place.
“I’m very happy with how my first race back with Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS went tonight. I felt comfortable on the bike out there and thankful for the opportunity. We will make some changes to the bike and be ready for a top ten next weekend in Indianapolis”Benny Bloss
The team now heads to Indianapolis, IN for for round eleven of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series.
