2012 AMA Supercross Wallpaper

James “Bubba” Stewart earned his first podium of 2012 AMA Supercross, the Joe Gibbs Racing Yamaha YZ450F rider finishing third Saturday evening in Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles.

Before over 35,700 spectators Saturday, JGRMX’s Stewart got off the line quickly in the start of the race, but a crash involving Muscle Milk Honda’s Trey Canard and Villa Yamaha’s Ryan Morais caused a red flag.

Upon the restart, a three-way battle began between hole-shot winner Jame Weimer (Monster Energy Kawasaki), Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM) and Stewart. The Yamaha rider Stewart had a small crash, but was able to regain momentum to finish third. Dungey would finish second, and Two-Two Motorsports Chad Reed would win the race.

James Stewart (Joe Gibbs Racing Yamaha YZ450F Supercross) says: “We had a rough practice session but my starts were great so I have to give it up to the team. This result is a confidence builder for sure. I was ‘there’ and we’ll go for it [the win] next week for sure. I always try my best and always go hard out there. We’ll get better. I made one mistake and just couldn’t bring it back.”

After three of 17 rounds, Stewart is in fifth in AMA Supercross Championship. The series moves to the O.com Stadium in Oakland this Saturday.
