Stewart Holds 3rd After Atlanta Crash


Stewart bounced back from a lap-one get-off, racing his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 through the field to 11th place by race’s end; and despite the challenging circumstances of the evening, he still held-on to third place in the overall championship points.

Although the Main Event didn’t go as Stewart had hoped, the overall Atlanta race was a good one for the Yoshimura Suzuki rider: He qualified fastest in practice and led all six laps of his heat race to take the win. In the Main Event, Stewart got a good launch on his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and was running up-front before the end of lap one. Unfortunately, he lost the front end and went down and had to work his way through the field from dead last. Despite the overwhelming odds, Stewart still managed to secure a respectable finish.

Said Stewart: “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. 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.”

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next event is the ninth round of the 2014 AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championships on Saturday, March 1st at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
