Murrieta, CA - Team San Manuel Yamaha Red Bull’s James Stewart is ready to race this Saturday in Toronto’s Rogers Centre. After his race ending crash in Jacksonville, some questioned if he’d make it to the track this weekend, but like a true Champion, James has remained focused on recovering and preparing for the next race, in pursuit of the overall Series Championship.
Despite some of the challenges this season, Stewart has consistently been posting the fastest lap times each week and staying atop the leader board and although the Jacksonville race didn’t go as hoped, one positive result was a narrowing of the series lead. Stewart took time to rest and regain his strength this week in preparation for Toronto’s race and had this to say, “I was definitely banged up pretty good in Jacksonville, but I’m feeling a lot better now and ready for Toronto.
At this point it’s all about the Championship and every race counts. I want to thank my fans, my team and my sponsors for all of their support this week and every week of the series. It really means a lot to me.” Stewart is currently in fourth place with 198 points, 23 points behind the leader.
