Corona, CA: Answer's James Stewart Survives Muddy San Diego!

Corona, CA: Round 7 of the AMA Supercross series brought with it the first mudder of the year and a whole host of interesting racing throughout the night. Yet, at the end of the 20 lap main event, Answer's James Stewart was able to ride through the chaos to capture 3rd and gain ground in the 2011 series points race.

In what has been a typically dry West coast swing of the AMA Supercross series, the San Diego Supercross round started out raining off and on throughout the day making the track more difficult as the night progressed. With an abbreviated practice schedule, Answer's Stewart was still able to pull the fastest qualifying lap time of the day and put himself in the drivers seat for the night's events. In Heat 2, James got the holeshot and easily led the way throughout the race, finishing in first.

As the Main Event began, track conditions started to worsen. To make things more difficult James had a disappointing start, where he rounded the first corner just inside of the top ten. For the 15 laps of the race, Stewart pushed on and worked his way through the mud up to second place. Everything looked to be in place for James to come away from San Diego with a 2nd place when an unfortunate stall in Lap 16 pushed him back two spots to fourth place. Shortly after, James was able to take advantage of another rider's mistake and capture the final spot on the podium as well as gaining valuable points in the Series point's race. "The track was gnarly and I didn't have it tonight," Stewart said. "I gave it my best, but my best just wasn't good enough."

As the AMA Supercross heads into it Eastern swing, James looks to capture back the series points lead and his 4th win of the season. As well as find us on our social sites: or to have a chance at winning some cool swag!
