James Stewart Crash – JS7 Atlanta Supercross Crash Video

When Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart arrived at round eight of the 2014 AMA Supecross Championship in Atlanta, he was a favorite.

The RM-Z450 pilot had won the previous two rounds, becoming the first rider in 2014 SX to win back-to-back races. And from the outset of Atlanta Supercross in the Georgia Dome, Stewart was strong.

The two-time SX Champion immediately moved into first place, but crashed on the opening lap. This ending Stewart’s podium chances, though he remounted and finished 11th.  The opening lap is attached above with footage from Stewart’s GoPro Hero3 camera.

“I came across the start straight and lost the front end going into the corner. I’m bummed. I was riding good all day and felt great going into the Main Event, but you can’t win when you’re on the ground,” Stewart says.

“I did my best to come back but the track was super-slippery, so the harder I rode, the slower I went. I was just happy to get back up and salvage as many points as I could. But I’m still confident and feeling good about my riding and I have to thank the Yoshimura Suzuki team for working so hard. We’re all disappointed but we’ll go back and get ready to come back strong for Indy.”

This kept him in the title hunt; Stewart is currently third in the championship standings, 26 points behind the leader Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Supercross.

During Atlanta Supercross practice, Stewart was fastest, and he led all six laps of his heat race. The 2014 AMA SX Championship now heads to Indianapolis Saturday, March 1, for round nine.
