Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart POV GoPro Video at Indy SX

When round 11 of the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series got underway this past weekend at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart was untouchable.

The Suzuki RM-Z450 rider set the fastest time in practice, and led all eight laps of his heat race to take his seventh heat win of the year.

This momentum continued into the 20-lap main event. Stewart took the lead for the first seven laps, but stalled his bike, having to rejoin the grid in fifth. Stewart would work his way up to third, finishing behind Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey in second and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto in first.

James Stewart (Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z 450 Supercross) says: “I almost stalled it in that same place twice. But I just stalled it. I don’t know if I hit the brakes; I don’t know what happened. But it’s definitely a bummer because races like that, they’re fun to be in.

“I was on it from lap one and I felt good. I was pulling away but that happened and I just had to regroup and come back. The Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 worked great in my heat race and even better in the Main Event. That was just a stupid move, bogus; that’s what you do when you first get on a motorcycle is stall it! But we’ll regroup and come back strong for Toronto.”
