2014 Arlington Supercross Yoshimura Suzuki Race Recap

This past weekend at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart took his second straight victory of 2014 AMA Supercross.

The Suzuki RM-Z450 pilot of Florida was the first rider to take back-to-back wins in 2014 Supercross. With his Arlington SX win, Stewart moved up to third in the point standings, two behind Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen and 14 behind the current leader, the reigning SX Champion Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki).

At Arlington, Stewart led all six laps of his heat race. After making a few changes to his motorcycle, Stewart got a great start in the 20-lap main event. He remained in second for the opening two laps, but then took the lead. He rode smoothly, and was able to capture his 47th career Supercross victory.

Joining Stewart on the Arlington SX podium was Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey and Muscle Milk Team Honda’s Justin Barcia, respectively.

“It was a great race. I got a really good jump off the gate and I was keeping the pace nice and smooth because Arlington is a track you could easily override,” Stewart said following the race.

“I did have a few sketchy moments, but overall it was awesome. It was perfect. It was great to get a win last weekend and then to get another win this weekend. After our heat race, we made some changes to the bike that just made the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 all that much better. I know my team believes in me and that’s the best part. But I also believe in myself and when it was time to go racing, I was there. Now I’m looking forward to doing it again next weekend at Atlanta.”

Yoshimura Suzuki recently released the attached video, which recaps the team’s performance at Arlington. Next up is the eighth round of 17 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
