Before 43,009 fans at Angel Stadium, Team Oakley’s James Stewart, won his second consecutive Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race. Oakley’s Ryan Dungey won his second consecutive Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites class race.

“I didn’t get the greatest start,” said Stewart. “It was a freight train out front, but I was able to get around Windham (Kevin) and Ryan (Villopoto). I came up short on the triple jump and lost my back brake for a few laps.”.

Dungey, who came into tonight’s race with the points lead, made his move on lap two and at the start of lap four, Dungey secured the lead and rode to victory and extended his points lead to six points.

“It was a great ride,” said Dungey. “I heard the fans every step of the way. The track played out really good for us. This is really enjoyable. We have a two week break in the Lites class, so we can go back and work hard and show up prepared for the next race.”
