Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing has signed Malcolm Stewart on a two-year contract through the 2023 season, entering both Supercross and Pro Motocross from next year.

Stewart, 28, finished sixth in 450SX as part of Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha this year in what was a Monster Energy Supercross-only deal.

Now, 2016 250SX East champion Stewart will transfer to the factory Husqvarna team ahead of 2022 as he solidifies his place in the premier class for the next two years.

“I’m really excited,” Stewart said on today’s coverage from Hangtown. “This all came right at the end of the Supercross season. They gave me the opportunity and I was like, ‘I definitely can’t turn this down’.

“I’m actually really excited because it turned out to being a two-year deal. In past teams I’ve been on it has been a one-year deal or Supercross-only, but to have this a full indoor-outdoor deal sealed for two years is great for me.”

It’s anticipated that Dean Wilson will remain at Husqvarna for another season, however, 2018 Supercross champion Jason Anderson has been linked to Monster Energy Kawasaki and last year’s 450MX champion Zach Osborne is expected to be announcing his retirement at the end of the year.
