James Stewart’s fame was born from being insanely fast… borderline reckless. But Bubba’s masterful performance in San Diego this past weekend – laced with bold strategy and steady riding – revealed the modern day JS7 as he clawed his way past Ryan Villopoto for the Supercross victory. Known to charge his hardest, despite the threat of crashing from the sheer power of today’s 450 cc dirt bikes, James’ riding in San Diego was nothing short of an eyebrow raiser for fans and the industry alike as he displayed a more mature, solid brand of racing for the fans.
The last time James Stewart raced a full Outdoors season, he slayed it with an absolutely perfect, undefeated season. Fast forward to 2012, and Bubba is giving the World flashes of…well, the old Bubba. In his first season riding for Yoshimura Suzuki in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Oakley’s Motocross Superstar utterly owned both Motos at Freestone, fending off challenges to tally four straight moto victories on the season.
Bubba’s Back! Motocross Superstar James Stewart Triumphs In Return to AMA Pro Motocross Championship
It’s official. Bubba’s back. Oakley’s Motocross Superstar James Stewart dominated the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross opener at Hangtown this past Saturday, dazzling fans in his much-anticipated return to the Outdoors. Despite his three years away from racing the series full time, coupled with his super recent (and immensely dramatic) switch to Yoshimura Suzuki after parting ways with Joe Gibbs Racing, he immediately sent a resounding message to the industry with a display of raw speed and flashes of the “Bubba of old.”
