James ‘Bubba’ Stewart update – back for Orlando supercross March 19
After being sidelined for eight weeks, Team Kawasaki’s James Stewart
plans to return to racing in the 250 class on March 19th at the Citrus
Bowl in Orlando FL Stewart has been sidelined with a fractured left
forearm since mid-January.
“I was really pumped to race for the championship this year, and my
Kawasaki was running awesome. It was huge let down for me and my team
when I got hurt.” said Stewart. “But I’ve been working hard, and
between training and therapy, my arm is now 100 percent. I’m ready to
get back in the mix”.
James, who is 19 years old, looks forward to challenging the world’s
best riders in the 250 class for the remainder of this year. He is the
first African American to ever win a major motorsports championship in
any racing discipline, and, has won four AMA 125 championships (125
East Supercross, 125 West Supercross, and a pair of 125 AMA Motocross
Championships), all on Kawasaki motorcycles.
As you probably know, James broke his arm at the Phoenix supercross back in January, and had surgery after that.
