Blake Baggett:

“I’m really excited to be a part of the Yoshimura Suzuki racing team for the 2015 Supercross and Motocross seasons. Testing on the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 has been going great and I’m looking forward to racing the bike for the first time at the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas.”

Baggett comes to Yoshimura Suzuki after finishing second overall in the 2014 AMA Pro 250 Motocross Championships, thanks to overall victories at the Thunder Valley, High Point and Budds Creek Nationals. Prior to that, Baggett celebrated a spectacular 2012 Motocross season, where he held the 250 class points lead for 11 consecutive rounds before winning the championship. Baggett also was a member of the 2012 Motocross of Nations team that finished third overall for Team USA in Belgium.

“Everyone at Yoshimura Suzuki is pleased to welcome Blake to the team. He has shown tremendous talent in the 250 class in both Motocross and Supercross. After just a few weeks of testing the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450, he has the potential to be extremely competitive in the premier 450 class. The whole Yoshimura Suzuki team is looking forward to helping Blake live up to his potential in 2015.”

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next race will be the 2014 Monster Energy Cup on Saturday, October 18, at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.
