Odd events and unusual action have typified the St. Louis Supercross since the first race was held in Edward Jones Stadium in 1996. Again for 2009, that tradition holds true, as Travis Pastrana designed one heck of a race course. In its inaugural race in 1996, Jeff Emig managed to end Jeremy McGrath’s dominance (13 consecutive wins) of the series that year in St. Louis. This time around, the unique course design would jump up to bite James Stewart, forcing a small crash that had him finish in second place behind an elated Chad Reed. With Blake Wharton claiming his first Lites Class win, and Pastrana attempting to qualify (he was close, but no cigar) St. Louis was all that a Supercross race should be: fun!
