James Stewart Wins Amp’d Mobile Supercross at Anaheim
Ryan Villopoto Picks Up AMA Supercross Lites Victory

James Stewart (Kawasaki) picked up a thrilling victory in front of 45,050 fans at Angel Stadium in Anaheim (California, USA). Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) won the AMA Supercross Lites main event.
Chad Reed (Yamaha) won the Progressive Direct Holeshot Award off the start of the 20-lap main event in the AMA Supercross class but was under immediate pressure from James Stewart. Ricky Carmichael (Suzuki) was in tow, just a few bike lengths back in third.
With the top three contenders out front, the table was set for another battle the sport is becoming accustomed to. At the end of the first lap, Stewart had taken claim of the lead as Carmichael began working on Reed for second. Stewart began pulling away before a crash on the finish line jump handed Carmichael the top spot.
Reed who was riding injured with a cracked shoulder blade, began to drop off the pace, leaving the battle to Carmichael and Stewart. Carmichael held off Stewart for a couple of laps before Stewart made the pass for the lead on lap seven. Carmichael stayed close for a couple of laps but a crash on lap 13 would end his hopes of a win.

Stewart held on for the victory, his 13th career AMA Supercross win. Carmichael regrouped to finish second, while Reed, in obvious pain, toughed out a solid third place finish.
"I went home and put my head down and put in some hard work," said Stewart in reference to the four-week break for the holidays. "I was lucky enough those guys saw me when I went down. I had a couple of burns and scrapes on my arm but was able to get back up and get the win."
Christophe Pourcel (Kawasaki) grabbed the Progressive Direct Holeshot Award to start the 15-lap AMA Supercross Lites main event. He held the lead for the first two laps before being passed by Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) who put an inside pass on his teammate just after the finish line jump.
Pourcel kept Villopoto honest for the next couple of laps but was never able to get closer than a couple of bike lengths. In the end, Villopoto was able to open up a sizeable gap and cruised to the easy victory. Pourcel finished second while Jason Lawrence (Yamaha) was third.
"Everyone was a little nervous coming into the first race," said Villopoto. "I got on the inside of him (Pourcel) was going a little too fast to stop. He didn’t go down so it was all good. He’s my teammate and I’m happy we were both able to make it up on the podium."
