Four Supercross Races...Four Different Winners!
James Stewart (#7) nailed down his first Supercross win of the 2012 season at Oaklands Overstock.com stadium (start photo from Anaheim1). Stewart passed early leader Chad Reed for the win, and holds down fourth spot in the standings heading into Anaheim2.
Defying pre race predictions, Joe Gibbs Racings, James Stewart, kept his Yamaha YZ450 upright in the Monster Energy 450 Pro main event, to take his first win of the 2012 Supercross season at Oaklands, Overstock.com stadium. James didn't even have to knock anyone down to do it. After Team Two Two Motosports Chad Reed got the holeshot, Stewart reeled in, and passed him for the lead and stayed there for the finish. Right behind was Honda mounted Reed, followed by Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto, who can't seem to get his starts up to par just yet. Reed held off Villopoto to take second overall, with Ryan Dungey, suffering a bad start, settling in for fouth at the checkered flag, behind Villopoto.
With Stewart taking the win, followed by Chad Reed, Ryan Villopoto, and Ryan Dungey, the overall Supercross lead now becomes a tie between Reed and Dungey for the top spot, with 85 points each. Sitting in third is defending champ Ryan Villopoto, with Stewart now poised to strike in fourth spot, and Jake Wiemer holding off Andrew Short and Josh Hansen for fifth in the overall points standings.
