Due to some logistical issues Blake had to leave his KTM 65 at the Herrin Compound after Round #4. So, Saturday morning when Blake and Mike got to the track they had to change the oil in the bike and put new tires on. The tires on the 65 are 12” so changing those with tire spoons is not an easy task. But, they got them on and Blake spent the day practicing both on his KTM 65 and Honda Grom.
