AMA MX 250cc National Motocross Champion / Owner of El Chupacabra Ranch
Blake Baggett, born and raised in southern California, started racing motocross at age four. Blake continued to race the elite amateur nationals from 1999-2009 and began his pro career at Rockstar Suzuki in 2010 where he earned his first 250 Supercross win. He then went on to race for Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki where he obtained his first 250 outdoor championship. At the age of 25, Blake is now competing in his third year of the 450 premier class and his wife Keleigh is at every races. He has invested in his career by creating El Chupacabra Ranch, a private motocross training facility located in central Florida. “I felt that building my own training facility would help take my career to the next level as far as results and longevity,” Baggett says. “To compete with the top tier 450cc guys, it takes training in a controlled environment.” Blake enjoys the bicoastal lifestyle as it provides him with a useful balance of weather, dirt, and training conditions.
