Team San Manuel Yamaha Red Bull’s James Stewart finished fourth in the 12th round of the AMA Supercross Series at Toronto.  Following a race ending crash in Jacksonville, Stewart had taken time off to rest and recuperate during the week.  However, Stewart showed no sign of injury Saturday night, by once again posting the fastest lap times and dominating his Heat race.  In Heat 2, Stewart started strong, taking the lead in Lap 1 and maintaining the lead for eight solid laps, finishing a clear 20 seconds ahead of the pack.  As the gates dropped for the Main Event, Stewart faced some unfortunate luck, when a small mistake in the first turn had him starting near the back.  Stewart quickly made his way through the field from 12th place to fourth, where he stayed for the remainder of the race, despite his continued charge.

“I feel like I rode pretty good, especially after last weekend’s race,” Stewart said.  “I’m trying my hardest out there and will hopefully turn my luck around for Dallas.”  Stewart didn’t get the finish he was hoping for, but did gain some valuable championship points, narrowing the lead once again.  With five rounds to go, Stewart is in fourth place with 216 points, 20 points shy of the lead.
