Stewart wins in San Francisco.

James Stewart has won his fourth consecutive Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race at AT&T Park - increasing the pressure on points leader Chad Reed.

After setting the fastest lap time in practice, San Manuel Yamaha rider Stewart took the main event holeshot head of Reed's Rockstar/Makita Suzuki team-mate Mike Alessi and Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto.

Reed started in fourth, but moved into second place on lap three. The Australian spent the rest of the race chasing Stewart but had little luck in making up ground. Villopoto finished third.

“We are working really hard this year,” said Stewart. “I felt good tonight and the track was tough. It was an awesome night for me.”

“I still have the points lead,” said Reed, yet to win an AMA race this season. “Right now that is important and we go back to Anaheim next weekend, so we will work to get better.”

Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Jake Weimer won his second Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites class race in San Francisco, snapping the two-race win streak of Rockstar/Makita Suzuki's Ryan Dungey.

Weimer took with the holeshot leading Suzuki's Cole Seely through turn one. Dungey started in fourth and by the end of lap one he moved into second place. GEICO Powersports' Trey Canard moved into third place on lap three.

After failing to pass Weimer on the first 11 laps of the main event, Dungey made his move, but lost his front end, causing him to crash. That allowed Canard to move into second place. Dungey remounted, passed Canard for second where he finished. Canard earned a season-best third place.

“I earned the first podium of my career here in San Francisco, so this is a special place for me,” said Weimer. “I rode a smart and calm race tonight. Ryan [Dungey] was riding great, but it's good for me to pick up the win.”

“I was a little impatient,” said Dungey about making the pass. “I made the move and it didn't work out. We will see what happens next weekend in Anaheim.”
