Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing and Malcolm Stewart will continue together for a further two seasons through 2024 and 2025, the contract extension confirmed this morning.

Stewart, 30, will contest both Monster Energy Supercross and Pro Motocross as part of the SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX). He finished third in his inaugural 450SX campaign with the brand last year.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Malcolm sign for two more years,” commented Nathan Ramsey, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team manager. “It was clear to us before Malcolm’s injury that he was ready to win races and compete for the championship in 2023.

“Malcolm is not only a fan favourite, but also a pleasure to have as a part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team, and we strongly believe that Malcolm will return to racing and be better than ever.”

In continuing to build upon that form earlier this year, Stewart displayed race-winning speed in the opening rounds of the new season – including leading laps at Anaheim 1 and then qualifying fastest and winning his heat race in San Diego – before he was unfortunately sidelined in late January and underwent knee surgery.

Stewart has since continued to go above and beyond with his rehab program, determined to reach 100 percent before getting back on the bike and making his competitive return, fully supported by the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team in his recovery.
