Thor Freestone RecapTuesday, May 29, 2012 | 1:10 PM
Thor’s Blake Baggett hasn’t always had good luck at the Freestone County Raceway, but on Saturday, he was able to walk out of Texas with the 250 class points lead. In both motos, Baggett had to come through the pack, leaving him little time to catch the leader. His 2-2 finish has stretched his lead to 14 points over second place. Teammate Ivan Tedesco had a tough run in Texas, but still finished 19th despite a hard first-turn crash in the second moto.
In the 450 class, Jake Weimer rode two come-from-behind motos, but Moto 2 was the most impressive as he climbed from 40th - after a first turn crash - to finish sixth. His 3-6 moto result was good enough for fourth overall and he currently sits fourth in the standings. Broc Tickle had a great run in the opening moto to finish seventh, but a mechanical in the second moto left him to finish 14th with a 7-40 result. Brett Metcalfe finished inside the top 10 in eighth with a 13-10 moto result.
At the GNCC in Masontown, W. Va., Thor’s Kailub Russell finished as the runner-up, but still is close to the points leader in the championship standings. He is only three points down, while teammate Charlie Mullins sits in third despite not finishing the race in West Virginia. Maria Forsberg kept her win-streak alive in the women’s class after coming through the pack following a bad start.For all the latest from Thor, be sure to visit thormx.com, Thor on Facebook and follow @ThorMXOfficial on Twitter.
