Don’t hold the fact that he’s from Middle America against him. “Okie” Shan Moore can beam himself to any Supercross venue in the country in the time it takes to download Kanye West to your iPod.

Stewart showed why he’s running the red number plate by posting the fastest qualifying time on his San Manuel Yamaha.

James Stewart posted the fastest time during qualifying for tonight’s opening round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California. Stewart, the defending series champ, posted a fastest lap of 56.820 on his San Manuel Yamaha YZ450F during the third practice session, but he was not as dominating as some thought he might be. Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey posted the second-fastest time with a 56.857, just .037 seconds off Stewart’s best.

Stewart’s teammate Josh Hill came next with a 57.202, while Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps (57.278) and JGRMX’s Justin Brayton (57.355) rounded out the top five.

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Chad Reed was a little less than a second off of Stewart’s pace with a 57.679 for sixth-fastest, with his teammate, Ryan Villopoto, sitting ninth-fastest at 58.301.

Josh Grant was all the way down in 19th, the JGRMX rider feeling the effects of a Wednesday get-off, and unable to get up to speed. Meanwhile, JLaw Racing’s Grant Langston was 20th with Jason Lawrence 22nd.

In the Lites division, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer was almost a half second faster than Star Racing’s Max Anstie, with Josh Hanson (Monster Energy Kawasaki), Trey Canard (GEICO Powersports Honda) and Ryan Morais (Canidae Motosports Suzuki) running, third through fifth.
