It’s been a trying three rounds for Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart, as he has all but been eliminated from title contention after finishes of 11-7-18, but on Saturday night inside Ford Field in downtown Detroit, Michigan, the Suzuki ride was in pure form. After getting around Muscle Milk Honda’s Cole Seely early, Stewart was flawless in his defense of Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto early advances, cruising to his third win on the season. The win was Stewart’s 48th of his career, tying Ricky Carmichael for second on the all-time wins list.
In 250SX, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s rookie sensation Adam Cianciarulo capitalized on early mistake by teammate Martin Davalos to hold off GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle for his third win of the season. Cianciarulo now holds a seventeen-point lead over Davalos with four round remaining in the East Region.
