2012 AMA Supercross Video
Although he suffered a first-lap crash at Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis Supercross Saturday evening, JGRMX Yamaha’s James Stewart fought back for a fifth-place finish.
Stewart had won his heat race, but due to a bad start out of the gate a a small mess up, he was 18th out of 20 riders on the first lap. But Stewart began a charge, and finished 15th, which allowed him to garner an additional 16 points.
Following round nine of 17 in St. Louis, which was won by Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, Stewart now has 152 points, 40 behind Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey (second), and 53 behind Villopoto.
James Stewart (JGRMX Yamaha YZF450 Supercross) says: “Something happened off the gate and I got a really bad start and I fell on the first lap so I was even further back but I was riding really well and got back through the pack up until Davi.
“I got held up a little bit and kinda ran out of time. We’d been struggling all day but finally seemed to find the right setting. So, another bad start but I’m stoked with how it went after that. You bring your own luck on yourself. The further back I start back the more things that can possibly go wrong. That’s what happening at the moment. We go to Daytona now and it should be good. The track will be a bit longer and you gotta be in shape to ride that one.”
