Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing announced today that James Stewart will race the 2014 AMA/FIM Supercross Championship season finale at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas next Saturday. Although the two-time Supercross Champion injured his left knee this past weekend at the penultimate round of the series at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, Stewart has since recovered and feels good about racing next weekend.
“We were really concerned after the New Jersey race on Saturday night,” said Yoshimura Suzuki Team Manager Mike Webb. “But although he twisted his knee pretty bad, we had it checked out this morning and we all feel good about James racing the final round of Supercross. We’ve had a tremendous season this year, with James winning five main events, picking up his 50th career victory and taking over second on the all-time Supercross wins list. James and the whole Yoshimura Suzuki team are looking forward to ending the 2014 season on a positive note in Las Vegas next weekend.”
Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s next event is the 17th and final round of the 2014 AMA/FIM Supercross Championships on Saturday, May 3rd, at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.
