RM-Z450 to five holeshots this year, Stewart swept both starts at the season-opening Hangtown National, then went on to pick up a Moto One holeshot at Southwick and two Moto Two holeshots: one at RedBud and one at Spring Creek. As a result, he amassed a total of nine holeshot points to capture the title and the $25,000 prize.

“I’m glad all those holeshots weren’t for nothing,” said Stewart. “I’m really stoked to win this award. Practicing with the team and at the house with my start gate helped a lot this year. Thanks to my Yoshimura Suzuki team for the awesome power of my Suzuki RM-Z450 and my mechanic Leroy for getting me set-up at the gate. The award is a testament to what we’re capable of but I’d have given up that 25K to keep racing those last few motos.”
