San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewar scored the fourth win of his season tonight inside the Edward Jones Dome before 59,518 fans at the 14th stop of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross. Geico Honda’s Justin Barcia extended his 250 East class points lead to 20 as he captured his third win of the season. Former Cardinals all-star Jim Edmonds was the ceremonial Grand Marshal.

Hart & Huntington/Dodge Motorsports’ Ivan Tedesco led the field through turn one in the Supercross class, with Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey and Stewart in tow. Stewart made quick work of Tedesco, passing him on lap 2. At the start of lap 3, Dungey moved around Tedesco as Stewart began to extend his lead.

While riding in third place, Reed landed off the course, which allowed Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto to take over the number-three position. Stewart held on for the win, snapping an eight-race winless streak. Dungey finished second and Villopoto third.

“It’s been a while since I have been up here,” said Stewart. “This feels great, and I am really happy for the team, who has been behind me 100% this year.

Villopoto leads Dungey in the championship points 275-270.

“I’ll take a third place finish; it is much better than last year,” said Villopoto, who suffered a season-ending injury last year in St. Louis. “I am looking forward to going to my hometown race next weekend in Seattle.”

Barcia started the 250 East class main event by getting the holeshot with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Bagget and DNA/Shred Stick/Yamaha’s Ryan Sipes following in second and third, respectively. Sipes quickly moved into second place on the opening lap, passing Bagget.

Barcia and Sipes traded positions on laps 2 and 3 before Barcia made the final pass and rode 12 perfect laps en route to the win. Sipes held on for second and Bagett finished third.

“Tonight was crazy,” said Barcia. “I know that this championship is coming down to the wire, and I look forward to the final race in Las Vegas. It wasn’t easy out there tonight. (Ryan) Sipes passed me out there, but I stayed focused and re-passed him.”
