    Weimer: Fast, smooth, perfect, ready to move up and challenge Dungey/Stewart/Hill.
    The Supercross podium for Anaheim 2, 2010 - 1st, Ryan Dungey; 2nd, Josh Hill and 3rd, James Stewart. James is trying his best to smile here, can you tell?
    Dungey going after Hill in the main was a classic battle, although once Dungey got by that was all she wrote. He had no problem at all getting away from the L&M teammates, and Hill admitted on the podium that he “just ran out of steam” later in the race. RD did not run out of steam in any sense of the word.
    Here’s the likely battle for the 2010 Supercross title - Stewart vs. Dungey. One’s had a rough season, the other’s had a dreamboat ride. Both appear to have been doing everything right with regard to preparation, etc., but rough luck and bad decisions have potentially ruined one rider’s chance at the prize. The two guys who are supposed to be in between these two have already removed themselves from the picture (unless RV wakes up sometime soon), so it’s just plain been a wacky season so far. In this shot, Dungey’s setting Stewart up for a clean pass just before he sets out after Hill out front. Once Ryan got past them both, he pretty much checked out.
    Josh Hill continued his solid run on the 2010 Supercross season with a very solid and inspired ride to 2nd at A2. He was a thorn in his teammate’s (Stewart) side all night, passing him after a battle in their heat race, then dicing with him for several laps in the main event. We tried hard to get a feel for the ‘vibe’ between those two after Josh clearly gave James no preferential treatment in their races. What we saw was that they didn’t really seem to acknowledge each other at all. Not once while on the podium or in those interim moments between on and off track did they even glance at each other, which may speak volumes about their relationship. Then again, it may say nothing at all about it, but it’s food for thought...
    James Stewart just wasn’t himself. That statement absolutely does not take anything away from either Josh Hill or Ryan Dungey, though, because their only crime was taking advantage of the situation. Stewart struggled all night, first in practice, then in his heat, and finally in the main event. He put up a valiant fight at first, but after he almost threw it away entering the second whoop section while fighting with Hill, it seemed to take some wind out of his sails. At one point he was even in danger of dropping back to 4th, as Short had his number for several laps and forced him to ride right on the edge of what he was apparently comfortable with. It will be interesting to watch how his injuries heel as the season progresses, and if by the time he’s fully up to speed, whether he can overcome Dungey and Hill’s newfound confidence.
    James, out. It was one helluva weekend of racing (and crashing) over in Phoenix last weekend, and the result is a complete shake-up of pre-season expectations. It really all started when points leader and defending champ James Stewart skipped the second timed qualifying session. That’s a highly unusual move, and the semi-official word out of the L&M pits was that since James had already set a seemingly unbeatable fast lap in the first session, that he didn’t feel the need to go out again and back it up. The other word was that he felt like the track was “beat” and didn’t want to put himself at risk by riding any more than necessary. Still another report was that something was wrong with him - sickness, injury, whatever. Bottom line was, James skipped it, got an uncharacteristically bad start in his heat race that forced him to make a questionable move on the first lap that resulted in an injury that will likely keep him out for this weekend’s racing. Of course, that also means he’ll have a much tougher time making up those points further down the road and, well, he’s probably not going to be able to defend that #1 plate.
    These are the guys who make up the pack just behind the leaders. Andrew Short, Justin Brayton, Kevin Windham (not shown here) and Davi Millsaps. Ignore that #1 guy behind them. This, however, may change, as so many top guys are now out of the mix in the Supercross class already in this young season. Reed: Out, Stewart: Questionable, Grant: Out. Hell, there's the podium right there. At this point it looks like the kids are taking over and, with the exception of an occasional flash of brilliance by Millsaps, it looks like Hill, Dungey and Villo will own the podiu for a while.
    It was 2005 when RC and Bubba had what I feel is the greatest race they’d ever run. They were back and forth all moto, and RC actually passed James at this very moment, on the same jump that Bubba eventually ate crap hard enough on that he’s still intimidated by it. I was setup to pan with them elsewhere on the track, but I was the pass coming so I winged it and hoped for the best and whaddaya know, it worked. Canon 1D Mark 2, 300mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    Dallas, with the golden light spilling in on the precise spot where all us photohounds had prayed it would. Unfortunately, I was the 3rd one to show up and, doubly unfortunate, I had only my 300 with me. That means I was forced to stand behind everyone else with my back to the wall and try to make something work. Well damned if I didn’t pull one out of my kiester and cough this one up, with Cudby to the right and Paul Bliss to the left, I couldn’t have timed this one any better! No idea on camera/year.

    Not much to say about this one: James “Bubba” Stewart whips it good on one of the tabletops by the Leap at Red Bud, circa 2003. Canon 1V-HS, Velvia100, 300mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    I love when they do the fireworks behind the start at Daytona, but it’s surprisingly hard to capture. In fact, ever since this shot, I’ve never been able to do it again. 2006. Canon 1D Mark 2, 300mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    You’ll notice one thing in a lot of these action pics – they’re typically of really fast guys trying very hard to go very fast. In other words, there’s a lot of shots of RC and Bubba here. This one right here, this is the one that started it all for me. I somehow managed to scrounge up a photo pass for the 2002 Red Bud National and was using a Nikon D1 that I bought (very) used from Steve Bruhn to snag this moment in time. Shawn Norfolk, then with Renthal, bought it from me and it ran on the back cover of RacerX. If I had died right then, I’d have died a happy man. Thanks Shawn! Nikon D1, not sure about the lens.

    Dumb luck on my part, this is one of my all-time favorite shots too. It’s Bubba obviously, but it’s a little wacky because he’s at Loretta’s in 2004(?) and he’s demo’ing the new KX250 in front of a packed house. Everyone’s so intrigued because James, on his first lap on the bike, is doing the triple down the rhythm section just after the finish line, and nobody had done it all week to that point. The dude jumps on a bone stock and still not broken-in KX250 and does it easily his first try. Oh and that flash going off in the background didn’t hurt the shot either, that’s the dumb luck part. Canon 1DMark2, 70-200. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    This is Stewart flat-out stuffing Grant Langston just after the first turn at Binghamton, 2003. I saw this move developing as I was up on the hill shooting the first turn, and knew he was going to go for it. I sprinted across part of the track that I was at and pointed through the trees (I scoped it out earlier, see, that’s why I’m a pro) and just hoped the sea of people would part. They did, and here’s the pic. I’ve had a lot of people tell me this is their favorite moto shot ever, and it’s definitely one of mine. This is a scan of a slide. Canon EOS 1V-HS, Kodak Ektachrome E100VS pushed a stop, 300mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    Easily one of my favorite shots ever, it’s Stewart running down defending champ Mike Brown and future champ Grant Langston at the final round – Glen Helen – in 2002. I saw this battle developing all race long and waited almost the entire moto to capture it, with the fans hanging over the fence and the flags lined up into the distance and the gnarly rutted track ahead of them. It finally happened with a few laps to go and, well, what you see is what I got. Nikon D1, 70-200mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)v
    Bubba, showboat, finish line at High Point 2004. That’s about it. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
