Stewart Takes 50th Career Win At St Louis


Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart raced his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 to his fifth win of the season and his 50th career victory at round 13 of the 2014 AMA/ FIM Supercross Championships at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on Saturday night.

This victory marks the first time that Stewart has celebrated three race-wins in a row since 2009.

Stewart headed into the event fresh-off of his spectacular record-breaking performance last weekend in Toronto. He hadn’t won in St. Louis since 2011. During the day’s practice, Stewart set the fastest lap-time on his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and then went on to finish second in his heat race. In the Main Event, he got a good launch off the gate and moved quickly from third place into second. Stalking the leader for several laps before making a clean but aggressive pass, Stewart captured the lead and pulled a gap to take the win. And with this result, Stewart became the first rider to win five races this year.

Said Stewart: “I don’t know what’s best, this weekend or last? Last weekend was obviously-special but to win again this weekend in a different State and to get a milestone like 50 race wins is unbelievable. I’ve got to give-it-up to the Yoshimura Suzuki team because we kind of had some issues all day but they came through for me in the Main Event. I feel like we’re riding really great and the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 was working amazing; especially through the whoops. It was a tough race and everybody was riding really good. But I was able to get in the lead and keep it going. Now we’ll just get ready for Houston and see if we can get another win there.”

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next event is the 14th round of the 2014 AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championship on Saturday, April 5th at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.
