Hilde is holding down the fort at MotoUSA's Southern Oregon HQ. With world-class dirt bike and ATV trails just minutes away, the hardest part is getting him to focus on the keyboard. Two wheels or four, it doesn't matter to our Off-Road Editor so long as it goes like hell in the dirt.

Chad Reed has lost his championship lead as James Stewart claimed another win and tied the Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider at 152 points apiece. Stewart put his San Manuel L&M Yamaha on the top box for the sixth time this season since losing the opening round in Anaheim. San Diego fans were treated to a 20-lap fiesta by Stewart with Reed running second the whole time.

James Stewart - Phoenix
Chad Reed continues to chase James Stewart on the track, but Stewart is no longer playing catch-up in the point standings.

Broc Hepler ran up front in third for the first three laps but dropped to mid-pack on Lap 4. Andrew Short took advantage and claimed third which he carried through the checkers. Monster Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto sailed across in fourth and Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps was fifth.

Shorty is now 30 points behind Stewart and Reed while Josh Gran sits in fourth after a DNF tonight.
