James Stewart made his return to the top step of the podium in Detroit with a vintage ride in which he led 19 of 20 laps and tied Ricky Carmichael for second on the all-time wins list at 48. Unfortunately for Stewart and the rest of the 450SX Class field, Ryan Villopoto had a strong night as well in second and continues to sit atop the Power Rankings this week.

James Stewart dominated Saturday night’s Monster Energy Supercross race in front of 50,856 fans at Ford Field to earn his 48th career victory, tying him with Ricky Carmichael for second on the all-time wins list.

After suffering three straight finishes of seventh or worse – including an 18th-place result last weekend in Daytona – Stewart returned to the top step of the podium in Detroit, Mich., leading 19 laps en route to a win over Ryan Villopoto and Ryan Dungey.

We’ve almost been waiting for the ball to drop that resulted in the kind of dominant ride that has not only made Ryan Villopoto a back-to-back-to-back champion, but also the most dominant rider on the planet. In Daytona, RV was in top form. It was his best ride of the season and the most convincing performance of the year thus far. All this doesn’t bode well for the likes of Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen, who now face a deficit of over one race in the standings. Villopoto is starting to find that groove that separates him from everyone else and he remains the frontrunner in the Power Rankings this week.

Daytona is as brutal as they come and it’s for that very reason why the winners of the prestigious event are a who’s who of the sport. Last Saturday night, a pair of familiar faces with past success at the World Center of Racing stood atop the podium. With this big test now out of the way for the world’s best riders, the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season now hits the home stretch and, unfortunately for the 450SX Class field, time is not on their side as they look to track down Ryan Villopoto.

Each week, The Holeshot will provide 22 takeaways – a full starting gate – from the most recent round of action.
