ARLINGTON, Texas (February 15, 2014) – In front of 54, 421 fans inside AT& T Arena, Team Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart won his second straight Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race with a prominent performance in the 450SX Class for the 47 th win of his career. In the starting race of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo captured his initial career victory in his Monster Energy Supercross debut.

 

Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey raced to the Nuclear Cowboyz ® Holeshot Award to start the 20-lap 450SX Class Main Event, edging out Stewart and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto. By the summary of the opening lap, Team Ford Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia got moved into third, with Toyota/Yamaha/N-Fab/JGRMX’s Mr. bieber Brayton in fourth and Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen within fifth. Villopoto crossed the line within sixth.

 

Dungey led the starting three laps before Stewart produced the winning pass and taken away steadily for the remainder from the Main Event. Dungey was never challenged for second, but the battle for the final spot on the podium waged on between Barcia, Brayton, Roczen, and Villopoto. Both Barcia plus Brayton took turns occupying the position while Villopoto challenged for the spot in the late stages of the competition. Ultimately, Barcia held on to third to secure his first podium consequence of the season.

 

Stewart moved to within one victory of tying five-time Monster Energy Supercross champion Ricky Carmichael for second on the all-time 450SX Class wins list. It was his first win inside AT& To Stadium, but his third within North Texas following wins within 2005 and 2007 inside the previous Cowboys Stadium in Irving, Texas. He also joins Villopoto plus Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed for the most wins in the division this season with two.

 

“I’m so happy, ” exclaimed Stewart. “I thought we needed to be better for the Main Event and we were. The particular track was really difficult and I knew I had to get myself to a specific point in order to make a pass plus control the race. The tournament doesn’t matter right now. We just need to keep riding like we are. Whenever we do that, then we’ll be good. ”

 

Villopoto finished fourth to maintain his lead in the championship standings, which now sits at 12 points over Roczen, who finished sixth. Stewart moved into third place, 14 points out of the lead.

 

Reed, which suffered an injury on the final lap of competition one week ago within San Diego, attempted to practice on Saturday despite a broken scapula, collarbone, and T1 vertebrae, but ultimately pulled out associated with competition. He fell from third to sixth in the championship.

 

By virtue of his victory, Stewart assumed control of the Toyota Three-way Challenge and holds a one-point lead over Villopoto and Barcia. With one race remaining in the Triple Challenge from East Rutherford, N. J., onApril 26, Stewart is now in position to win a new Toyota Tundra if he keeps the advantage. The wins by Reed and Stewart in the first two races mean that no rider may claim the $250, 000 reward for winning all three Primary Events.
