So once again Chad Reed has taken advantage of a Stewart mistake to win an Amp’d Mobile Supercross. Stewart had taken the lead from Reed a few laps into the San Diego main event and appeared to be working on another win when he clipped a Tuff Block and crashed taking off from the finish-line jump. Reed barely missed him on the landing, and then Stewart had to rescue his damaged motorcycle from between the doubles and stop in the pits to get his bike straightened out. Stewart was able to claw back to fifth, but it could have been so much worse. Every time he has an incident like that, he is inches away from a season-ender.
He is safe for the moment, though, and he is still 12 points up in AMA Supercross. James is in control of the championship, but to hold onto it, he’s going to have to settle down and limit his mistakes. Sound familiar?
Tim Ferry didn’t give up when he was way down in the career doldrums a few years ago after countless injuries. He’s getting rewarded big-time now. Timmy collected his third podium in a row with his runner-up finish. Is a win a possibility if the circumstances are right? You bet.
Finally, Kevin Windham is working his way back as well, finally getting on the podium in what has been a trying year. And he finished there while wearing the Leatt neck brace, which may become a trivia question somewhere down the road.
