James Stewart on NBC's "Deal or No Deal" Tonight

IRVINE, Calif.- Monster Energy Kawasaki rider James Stewart took a day off from riding this off-season, to join host Howie Mandel and surprise a contestant on NBCs hit game show Deal or No Deal, which airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on NBC.

Riding out on his 2008 Kawasaki KX450F race bike, Stewart surprised contestant Guy Goudeau and offered support and even a little advice as Goudeau tried to win one million dollars. As a fan of the show, Stewart knew exactly how the game worked and was quick help for Goudeau to achieve his goal.

Just being on a TV show outside of supercross or motocross is special, said Stewart. Unfortunately I wasnt the one picking the cases, because if I was, we would have won big.

Stewart's appearance comes just two nights after he finished second in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season opener in Anaheim, Calif. This week Stewart and the Monster Energy Kawasaki team will travel to Chase Field in Phoenix as the defending race winner.
