SUPERCROSS Round 3, Anaheim 2

What a battle! This was one of the most intense races I've seen in a while. Stewart raced hurt, which really slowed him down, but he put up a fight. Stewart has always been a checkers or wreckers kind of guy, and he continues to be as he battled the pain of a hurt wrist. Dungey got off to a great start, but Stewart charged ahead followed by his teammate Josh Hill on the 2 Yamaha's. Stewart led for 6 laps until Hill made the pass with Dungey close behind in 3rd. These 3 battled for the lead for most of the race until Ryan Dungey made the pass on his Suzuki and put the hammer down on lap 14. Once he got out in front he was flying. Stewart seemed to run out of gas and began to drop back, basically unable to hang on anymore. Hill was able to hold onto second while Stewart managed third. The action was intense with Stewart trying his normal stunts, wheelies through the whoops, clearing massive jumps with spurts of speed, but then fumbling, struggling to hang on. Dungey maintains his points lead on the series, but Stewart was able to stay in the hunt. It should make for some very intense action this season. Round 4 will be aired on CBS next Sunday. Dungey looks fast, it will be interesting to see if he can hang with a healthy Stewart, if he's able to get things fixed up. He was basically carried off the track after the final. Something is definitely not right.
