In front of 60,213 race fans at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri, James "Bubba" Stewart won his third 450cc Monster Energy Supercross race in a row—his fifth of the season. After his win, the Haines City, Florida, native sits 36 points behind Ryan Villopoto (268 total points) with four races left in the 2014 season. Ryan Dungey currently sits in second place with 233 points.

"This is a special night for me," said Stewart in a quote distributed by Supercross Media. "This year I have been having a lot of fun winning races. Tonight was a great race for me; I was able to make the pass and ride to my 50th win. That is huge for me. I never thought I would win 50 of these races," he added. The race was marked by a scary crash that saw rookie Wil Hahn fly 50 feet through the air after crashing on an ill-timed jump. Hahn was taken to the hospital for a concussion, broken scapula, dislocated shoulder, and head trauma and will miss the rest of the season.

Supercross heads to the Astrodome in Houston next weekend, where Stewart has won four times in the past. For a preview of that and the remaining races, check out TransWorld Motocross' "2014 Monster Energy Supercross Fan Guide."
