James Stewart will make his return to racing with Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing this Saturday for Millville’s eighth round of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

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

Team manager Mike Webb congratulated Stewart on the new addition to the family and assures the former champion has continued his regular training program while absent from the Pro Motocross circuit.

“We celebrate with James the newest addition to the Stewart family,” said Webb. “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.”

Stewart will be the sole rider for the team this weekend following teammate Blake Baggett’s exit from the series after re-inuring his shoulder at last weekend’s Southwick round.
