Chino, CA (July 14, 2016) – James Stewart will make his return to racing with Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing this Saturday in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship round in Millville, Minnesota.

Stewart will be the sole rider for the team this weekend. Teammate Blake Baggett reinjured his collarbone in a crash Saturday at Southwick and will unfortunately miss the remaining rounds of the outdoor nationals.

Substitute rider Matt Bisceglia will continue with the squad through the end of the season, although he too is recovering from injuries sustained in a crash in Southwick last weekend. Bisceglia is slated to return with the Unadilla round on August 13th.

Stewart missed recent rounds of the Pro Motocross Championship awaiting the arrival of his family’s first child. The Stewart’s son, Tabiahs, was born this past Saturday morning in Florida.

Team manager Mike Webb said the team is happy to have James back on board.

“We celebrate with James the newest addition to the Stewart family,” Webb said. “I’m sure some teams will be looking to sign the little guy before he’s out of diapers. Even though James has stayed with his family waiting for the birth of their baby, he’s been on his RM-Z practicing and he’s ready to get back to racing.

“It’s a tough break to lose Blake for the season. He’s been such a warrior fighting back and racing with injury and pushing himself all the way to some solid finishes. We couldn’t be more pleased with his efforts. Matt’s been doing a great job filling in and we look forward to his return at Unadilla.”

Live coverage for Millville begins this Saturday, July 16th at 11:00 am Eastern on www.promotocross.com. The motos can also be viewed on MAVTV and NBCSN.
