Adam Baggett led 194 of the 200 laps in last Saturday’s 17th annual Pumpkin Smash Halloween Bash Enduro for his first Madera Pumpkin Smash triumph.
Baggett topped a field of 22 competitors on a one-third mile speedway covered in smashed pumpkins and soaked in water before each 100-lap segment. The event was filmed for a later telecast on MAVTV.
“This is pretty much our Indy 500 and our Daytona 500,” Baggett said. “This was quite a race. We seemed to have it pretty well sewn up at the beginning. I couldn’t believe it. We were able to find a lot of traction on the low line, and I was a bottom feeder, and it worked out.”
