Chino, CA (June 23, 2016) – Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing will be back to a two-rider squad this Saturday, June 25, as the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship visits Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN, for the Tennessee National. Blake Baggett will return to the squad alongside fill-in rider Matt Bisceglia. James Stewart will remain home in Florida with his wife for the pending birth of their baby.

“It will be great to have Blake back with us in Tennessee,” said Mike Webb, Yoshimura Suzuki team manager. “And with Matt filling in again, the weekend will be full of activity taking care of two riders and that’s the way we like it.”

This will be Baggett’s first race back since round two at Glen Helen, where he bravely rode just days after surgery on a broken collarbone. For Bisceglia this will be his third race as a sub with Yoshimura Suzuki. He’s filled in admirably with some solid motos to his credit.

Baggett and Bisceglia will be racing the powerful Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 at Muddy Creek. Last year Baggett scored a strong fourth-place result and is a former podium finisher at Muddy Creek in the 250 class. Bisceglia scored a top-10 finish in the 250 National a year ago.

The Tennessee National this Saturday will be the second race of the season televised on NBC starting at 3:30 pm Eastern. Go online at to see the full television schedule for the event.
