2011 Supercross Finale

Although he missed the opportunity to capture his third AMA Supercross title, James Stewart seeks success tonight in Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas.

Stewart was one of four seeking the championship heading into the penultimate round last weekend, but he sustained two crashes on the Yamaha YZF450R that placed him in 10th, dropping him from possibly winning the 2011 title (the three vying tonight in Las Vegas will be Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki), Chad Reed (Honda) and Ryan Dungey (Suzuki).

Stewart is in fourth, 34 points behind Villopoto as the 2011 Supercross Championship heads to Las Vegas for the season finale.

Attached is a video of James Stewart previewing what he expects and his Yamaha YZF450 before tonight’s race in Vegas.
