Stewart stays perfect at Millville.

Monster Energy Kawasaki's James Stewart earned his eleventh overall victory of the 2008 AMA Toyota Motocross Championship Presented by FMF season at Southwick.

The newly crowned champion also won his 21st and 22nd motos to keep his hopes of a perfect season intact with just one round remaining.

"It definitely wasn't smooth," explained Stewart, who earned career win 14 to move into seventh on the all-time AMA Motocross win list. "I've won a moto here before, but that was it. I've gotten this far [with the perfect season] so I want to win [next weekend]. But it hasn't really hit me yet."

Suzuki City Biloxi, MS/OTSFF Suzuki's Cody Cooper finished a career best second overall with 7-2 moto results. Monster Energy Kawasaki's Tim Ferry finished third after posting 4-4 moto finishes.

In AMA Motocross Lites, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto ended a two-race drought to take the overall victory, the 20th of his career. Just a week after winning his third consecutive AMA Motocross Lites title, Villopoto posted wins in each of the day's motos.

"The track was rough," said Villopoto. "Being sand, you could just about anywhere you want, but obviously there is going to be one fast line. The last two races I've made mistakes here and there. Coming in here, I wanted to win [the overall] because I've never done that."

Rockstar/Makita Suzuki's Ryan Dungey finished second overall (3-2), while Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Brett Metcalfe went 2-3 for third overall.

The series concludes at Steel City Raceway on August 29-30.
