Although the main event didn’t go as Stewart had hoped, the overall Atlanta race was a good one for the Yoshimura Suzuki rider. He qualified fastest in practice and led all six laps of his heat race to take the win. In the main event, Stewart got a good launch on his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 and was running up front before the end of lap one. Unfortunately, he lost the front end and went down and had to work his way through the field from dead last. Despite the overwhelming odds, Stewart still managed to secure a respectable finish.
