Dodger Stadium Supercross Video

At the inaugural AMA Supercross race at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles Saturday night, San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart piloted his YZ450F to a second-place finish.

Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., finished behind Dodger Supercross winner Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F). Finishing third was reigining SX champion Ryan Dungey (Rockstar Makita Suzuki RM-Z450).

After starting behind Dungey and hole-shot winner Brett Metcalfe (Rockstar Makita Suzuki), Stewart got into third at the end of lap one. Metcalfe would crash, giving the lead to Dungey, and on Lap 4 Stewart passed Dungey and became the SX-race leader.

His lead didn’t last long; Stewart crashed his Yamaha on lap 11 of 20, but only lost a few positions. By the end of Lap 16, Stewart was back in second at Dodger Stadium, and remained there until the checkered flag.
