    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.
