James Stewart stars in Toronto and moves to second on the all-time wins list

Posted:

Team Yoshimura Suzuki‰Ûªs James Stewart raced to his fourth 450SX Class victory of the season in front of 48,892 fans inside the Rogers Centre, Toronto, with a come-from-behind effort that puts him in sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list at 49.

In the sixth race of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship, GEICO Honda‰Ûªs Justin Bogle took advantage of a strong start to capture his first career Main Event win.

Red Bull KTM‰Ûªs Ken Roczen Nuclear Cowboyzå¨ Holeshot Award to start the 20-lap 450SX Class Main Event with Monster Energy Kawasaki‰Ûªs Ryan Villopoto and Team Honda Muscle Milk‰Ûªs Justin Barcia in tow. Roczen and Barcia took over the top two spots and engaged in a battle for the lead before Barcia made the pass stick on Lap 3. Stewart began the Main Event with a mid-pack start and crossed the line in ninth on the opening lap. He immediately began making a climb through the field, on a steady march to the front.

Barcia opened a comfortable margin on Roczen, who started to lose time to his teammate Ryan Dungey in third, as well as Stewart, who moved into fourth place on Lap 7. Stewart slipped by Dungey for third on Lap 11 and then made the pass on Roczen one lap later. Stewart then closed the deficit on Barcia and pressured him for a lap before making the winning pass on Lap 14. That same lap, Dungey passed Roczen for third.

Stewart pulled away in the closing laps to post back-to-back victories and become the winningest rider in the championship this season. Barcia grabbed a season-best result of second, holding off a hard-charging Dungey in third. Stewart‰Ûªs 49 career wins breaks a tie with five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael on the all-time list. Stewart now sits 23 wins behind the record of 72 held by seven-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath.

‰ÛÏThat was probably one of my best races ever, I‰Ûªm speechless,‰Û
