Stewart wins first AMA night race.

"It was tough [under the lights]," stated Villopoto. "You had to watch your shadows and really keep on your toes. I just tried to make my passes stick. Josh got away and once I got into second I had to put a charge on. I was able to carry a little more momentum on the outside [to pass him].

"I think we could use a little more light. It was better than I thought it would be and the track was maintained well throughout the evening. Normally, the altitude up here gets to you, but since it was cooler and at night our bikes were able to perform better and we could endure easier."

Stewart currently holds a 45-point lead over Alessi in the AMA Motocross standings. In AMA Motocross Lites, Villopoto has a 28-point advantage over Rockstar/Makita Suzuki's Ryan Dungey who failed to finish the second moto after a fall on the opening lap.
