31.07.2006 AMA Motocross Championship - Results from Washougal (USA)

Stewart returns to the top of the podium with Washougal win

James Stewart (Kawasaki) took advantage of a late-race crash by Ricky Carmichael (Suzuki) in the second moto to win before a crowd of 27,442 at the Unbound Energy National at Washougal Motocross Park, round eight of the 12-race Toyota AMA Motocross Championship. Andrew Short (Honda) was the AMA Motocross Lites winner.

Stewart who is currently battling injuries sustained earlier in the season, took home the overall win with a 2-1 moto finish and returned to the top of the podium, earning his second overall win of the season. Carmichael wound up second overall with a 1-2 finish and saw his six-race win streak come to an end. Chad Reed (Yamaha) was third (3-3).
After seeing Carmichael come from behind to win the first moto, Stewart again saw an early lead slip away when Carmichael made a pass late in moto two. However, with two laps to go, Carmichael made an uncharacteristic mistake and crashed, handing the lead and the overall win to Stewart.
"It feels good to be back … it was a hard road to get here," said Stewart, who has missed five motos due to crashes and injuries. "I think the last three months I’ve ridden three weeks (due to injuries) and I told myself that I’m (going out there) for the team and for the fans. Once he got by me I was trying to keep him close. With a couple laps to go, fortunately I was able to take advantage."

Mike Alessi (KTM) finished third (3-4) and took over the top spot in the AMA Motocross Lites point standings. Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) relinquished his series lead after a bike failure in the first moto left him with a 40-2, good for sixth overall.
