Bench Racing Ammo: Stewart Stats

It’s no secret that James Stewart no longer holds the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series in the iron grip he once did. To get an idea of just how dominant Stewart once was, we decided to pull the stats from the first nine rounds of his championship years of 2007 and 2009, and compare them to the first nine rounds of 2011 and 2012. We didn’t include 2008 and 2010 because Stewart was sidelined with injury during those seasons.

Obviously, the first half of Stewart’s 2012 season has not gone well in relation to the standards he’s used to. What’s to blame? Nobody knows for sure, perhaps not even Stewart himself, or anyone at the JGR team. One thing that is for sure, is that Stewart’s starts have been terrible this season. Take a look his position at the end of the first lap through the first nine races of 2012.

Round 4          4

Round 5          4

Round 6          6

Round 7          7

There’s a chance that Stewart is just a few good starts away from setting his stats on the up trend—but going back to his old 2007 level of dominance in this field will not be easy.
