Stewart Dominates 20 Laps to Win Sixth Amp'd Mobile World Supercross

ORLANDO (March 18, 2006) - Kawasaki's James Stewart of Haines City, Fla., won his sixth Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp'd Mobile AMA Supercross Series before 43,081 fans at the Citrus Bowl. Honda's Josh Grant, of Riverside, Calif., won his second AMA Supercross Lites race of the season.

Stewart won the $1,500 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award with Michael Byrne, of Menifee, Calif., in second and Suzuki's Ricky Carmichael, of Tallahassee, Fla., in third. Carmichael moved into second on lap 1 and followed Stewart for the remainder of the race. Honda's Nick Wey, of Dewitt, Mich., made a last lap pass on Suzuki's Ivan Tedesco, of Murrieta, Calif., to finish third.

Carmichael extended his points lead over Yamaha's Chad Reed to XX

"It has been a good day, all day," said Stewart. "I felt very comfortable on the track today and wanted to win for Polk County where I live. I am the local boy at Orlando so I wanted to win for the fans. I had a scary crash last week in Daytona but put it back together for this week. I am going to keep my head down and see what happens the rest of the season."

Yamaha's Bryan Johnson, of Cairo, Ga., earned the $1,000 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award with Kawasaki's Chris Gosselaar, of Victorville, Calif., in second. On lap 3 Grant moved into the lead after he passed Gosselaar. Millsaps started mid-pack and moved into second place on lap 3.

Grant held on for the next 12 laps to pick up the win. Millsaps was second and Gosselaar third.

"I made my pass on Gosselaar in the whoops, which was a big for me because I have been working on riding the whops a lot lately," said Grant. "My teammate Kevin Windham has been helping me in the whoops and it paid off tonight."

Tonight's race will air on SPEED on Sunday, March 19, at 6:00 p.m. EST. A separate one-hour broadcast of the AMA Supercross Lites racing will air on SPEED on Saturday, March 25, at 6 p.m. EST.
