Windham and Stewart Vegas Crash Sequence

Monday, May 9, 2011
James Stewart and Kevin Windham - Las Vegas 2011
Windham and Stewart battled hard.
James Stewart and Kevin Windham gave racing fans at the Las Vegas Supercross in Sam Boyd Stadium one of the greatest battles of the evening. K-Dub put his impeccable throttle control, smooth style and veteran experience to use and immediately took the lead. Stewart pulled right behind, watching lines and eventually making a clean pass. From there he started doing a ridiculous quad followed by a triple-triple-double section. Windham took one look at the tricky combo and started doing it the very next lap. The Honda rider was not going to be outdone and was riding the best he has all season. Unfortunately, the epic war was cut short when Stewart carried his front end over one of the whoops and crashed. Windham was already committed and had nowhere to go, attempting to wheelie over the YZ450F but getting pitched in the process. The Honda rider was too shaken to continue and Stewart dusted himself off for 15th.

Check out the sequence below captured by Frank Hoppen.

Kevin Windham had nowhere to go when Stewart crashed in front of him through the whoops.Kevin Windham  #14  was working on a storybook finish to the 2011 season  but ran into trouble when Stewart  #7  went down.
K-Dub tried to wheelie over JS7s Yamaha and nearly pulled it off  but ultimately he wound up over the bars.James Stewart had a crash in the whoops which also took out Kevin Windham.
Like we've seen many times this season, JS was the fastest rider, but crashing kept him out of contention. This time it snagged
fan-favorite, Kevin Windham in the process. Fortunately, both riders walked away.
