Arlington Supercross Results: Stewart Cruises To 2nd Consecutive Win

2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Results: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas

February 15, 2014: Passing KTM-mounted Ryan Dungey for the lead on the second lap, James Stewart took his Suzuki RM-Z450 to an unchallenged win at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series. It was the second consecutive win for Stewart, who now sits 3rd in the series standings behind KTM’s Ken Roczen.

“I’m so happy,” Stewart said after the race. “I thought we needed to be better for the Main Event and we were. The track was really difficult and I knew I had to get myself to a certain point in order to make a pass and control the race. The championship doesn’t matter right now. We just need to keep riding like we are. If we do that, then we’ll be good.”

Muscle Milk Team Honda’s Justin Barcia took his first podium of the year, establishing himself in 3rd place after battling with JGRMX’s Justin Brayton and Roczen for the first third of the race. Brayton eventually finished 5th, a spot ahead of Roczen.

Series leader and defending champion Ryan Villopoto was 6th after the opening lap on his Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F, and remained there for the first half of the race. He eventually passed Roczen and Brayton to finish fourth, Villopoto’s first time off the podium since the Anaheim 2, the third round of the series.

Broc Tickle, Wil Hahn, Josh Hill and Andrew short rounded out the top 10 in that order. Suzuki-mounted Weston Peick’s run of top 5 finishes came to an end, as he crashed twice in the Main after qualifying strongly out of his Heat.

Chad Reed, who was injured in a crash on the last lap of the previous round attempted to qualify, but reinjured himself, sending him back to the hospital for evaluation.
