Stewart Moves To 2nd At Houston SX

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart pushed through exhausting illness to move into second place in the series standings at round 14 of the 2014 AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championship.

Despite his flagging health, Stewart turned in an inspired ride on his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and finished fifth at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Saturday night.

Although Stewart had been flying high from winning the last three rounds and capturing his 50th career Supercross victory, he came into the Lone Star State feeling under the weather. Despite this, he still gave 100 percent.

Said Stewart: “This has been a rough week for me. I just had some kind of stomach bug and I’ve been feeling pretty weak. I felt good enough to travel to Houston, but I started feeling worse as the day went on. I rode the first untimed practice and the second timed session, but I was only able to ride two laps because I was feeling so bad.”

After spending as much time recuperating as possible, Stewart came out for his heat race and managed to take the win. Again retiring directly to the pits to convalesce, Stewart’s priority was to save his strength for the 20-lap Main Event. When the evening’s race started, Stewart got off the line in the top-10 after narrowly avoiding several riders who went down in turn-one. After that, the Yoshimura Suzuki rider settled safely into sixth and overtook fifth place by race’s end.

“In the heat race, I got a decent start and was able to pass for the lead but by the second lap, I was just done,” said Stewart. “I had no energy, I felt really weak and I made a few mistakes, but I was able to win. Afterwards, I went back to the pits to try to recover and we were debating whether it was safe to go out and race the Main. I wanted to, so I went out and got an OK start and made my way up to fifth and just salvaged everything I could. I’m happy with fifth, considering how I’m feeling. And I’m really happy about moving up to second in the points. Now I just want to get healthy and come back next weekend. We have three races left and I want to go out and get three wins. I still feel good as far as riding goes; I just have to get healthy now.”

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next event is the 15th round of the 2014 AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championship on Saturday, April 12th at Century Link Field in Seattle.
