DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- James Stewart raced to his second career Daytona Supercross victory Saturday night on a muddy rain-soaked course at Daytona International Speedway.

Stewart, the Yamaha rider from Haines City, Fla., slipped past Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Davi Millsaps on the third lap and dominated the rest of the 16-lap event to win by 7.572 seconds.

Stewart also won at Daytona in 2007.

Millsaps was second, and Honda's Kevin Windham finished third. Because of the muddy conditions, AMA shortened the Supercross main event by four laps and the Lites main event by three laps.
