Stewart holds Reed in Dallas.

Kawasaki's James Stewart picked up his tenth win of the season in the Amp'd Mobile AMA/World Supercross championships in Dallas - after holding off a charging Chad Reed for almost the entire main event.

Honda's Andrew Short grabbed the $1,500 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award at turn one, but his advantage was short lived as Stewart went flying by at the start of lap three. But title rival Reed kept him honest, with only a few bike lengths separating the two riders for the remaining 18 laps.

In the final turn, Yamaha rider Reed made one last attempt at the win but came up just short of sneaking inside of Stewart, who finished just 0.085secs ahead.

"I'll take anything over last weekend," said Stewart in reference to his poor start and come-from-behind win last week in Indianapolis. "The first two laps I was just kind of riding. The track changed a lot from the heat race to the main. I swept Texas this year [winning Houston earlier in the year] and that's big."

In the Supercross Lites race, another Kawasaki rider, Ben Townley, took the holeshot ahead of team-mate Darcy Lange and Suzuki's Ryan Dungey. Lange would claim the lead on the opening lap with Dungey and Townley in close tow.

Dungey took over the lead on lap four and was beginning to pull away before a crash on lap eight handed the lead to Townley. Once out front, Townley went on to the victory, his third of the season. Lange finished second while Dungey rounded out the top three.

"Darcy and Dungey gave me a good battle out there," said the former world champion, who closed to within three points of series points leader Ryan Morais, who finished fourth. "It's [the championship] going to go down to the wire. Detroit's going to be an intense one. I'm just going to go home and work as hard as I can to be ready for it."

The next round of Amp'd Mobile Supercross takes place on Saturday, April 21, at Detroit's Ford Field.
