    The racing in Supercross this year has been flat out insane. With Bubba Stewart’s super gnarly crash in Daytona a couple of weeks ago clearing the way for O Star Ryan Villopoto to snatch the victory, one thing was on everyone’s mind coming into Indianapolis this past weekend. How would two of the top O riders respond? They did what Champions do. Charge even harder.

    It doesn’t get much more dramatic than this, folks. Oakley superstar rider James Bubba Stewart sustained a huge crash at Daytona International Speedway this past weekend after absolutely smoking the field from the starting gate on during the main event – sending fellow Oakley rider Ryan Villopoto to the checkered flag with his second straight Supercross Daytona victory. Defending Supercross champ Ryan Dungey also smashed his way from the middle of the pack after a shaky start – to a solid third-place finish. Of course, there’s always some kind of intense action going down at Supercross. No surprise there. But this year in Florida – on a brutal, choppy track designed by Oakley Motocross Legend Ricky Carmichael – the gnarly cake went straight to Bubba, who absolutely dazzled the industry with one of the most inspiring displays of guts and talent as of late.

Oakley star Casey Stoner raised eyebrows in late February as he absolutely owned the track on the final day of the second official test – rocking the two minute barrier with a shocking time of 1m 59.665s on just lap two of day three on his Honda RC212V. Even crazier: the 2007 MotoGP Champ was playing around with different settings while posting the time – the fastest ever MotoGP time around the Sepang circuit.
