Monster Energy Kawasaki Rider James Stewart Becomes a Phoenix Favorite with Win

PHOENIX (January 14, 2008) – Monster Energy Kawasaki rider James Stewart took the win and a share of the points lead during the second round of the Monster Energy® AMA Supercross Series, an FIM Championship with an impressive victory at Chase Field.

After a clean start, Stewart ran a smooth race, leading all 20 laps of the main event to put his Kawasaki KXT450F on the top step of the podium for the first time this season. His teammate Timmy Ferry didn’t fare as well, a rider knocked one of the safety blocks on the track in front of him, leaving Ferry with no place to go. The veteran recovered to finish 10th.

The Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites race was an action filled event with the top five riders trading positions throughout the feature. One of the riders involved in the thrilling duel was Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Brett Metcalfe who finished on the podium in third.
