Stewart: Jacksonville Supercross Crash

2011 AMA Supercross

The first lap at Jacksonville AMA Supercross Saturday evening sent a chill up the spine of many fans, especially those of James Stewart.

The San Manuel Yamaha YZ450F rider crashed out on the first turn of the 20-lap race, colliding with TiLube Kawasaki's Matt Goerke. And it all happened before the Haines, Fla., native's home crowd.

Stewart, who started Jacksonville Supercross with the fastest lap times and victory in his heat race, was taken off the track by the Asterick medical staff. Initial reports said Stewart injured his pelvis, but further examination showed no serious injury.

James Stewart (San Manuel Yamaha Supercross) says: "I was really hoping to pull this one out. It was my home state, I'm familiar with the tracks, all my fans were there cheering me on and it's just really disappointing for me, my team, my sponsors and my fans. It's all about Toronto and the rest of the season now."

But due to not garnering any points, Stewart went from second to fourth place in the AMA Supercross Championship, now 23 points behind the leader Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki). Chad Reed (Two-Two Motorsports Honda) is currently in second, with the reigning champion Ryan Dungey (Rockstar Makita Suzuki) moving into third in the points, five ahead of Stewart.

As for the Jacksonville results, Trey Canard took his second win of the 2011 AMA Supercross season aboard the American Honda CRF450R. He was joined on the podium by Reed and Dungey.
