Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Malcolm Stewart grabbed his third consecutive top five finish in the 450SX class at round four of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series.
Stewart was smooth and steady all night, keeping his FC 450 Rockstar Edition in the mix from start to finish. In 450SX Heat one, Stewart grabbed a fifth-place start he maintained a good pace through the checkers to secure a fifth-place transfer into the Main Event.
In the main, Stewart had a great jump off the start and he challenged the leader early on from the second-place position. He continued to fight up front for the first few laps before settling into fourth mid-way through the race. He kept the intensity high for all twenty laps of the Main Event, bringing it home for a strong fifth-place finish in Anaheim.
“We were struggling a little bit in practice but we really turned the night around once the gate dropped for racing,” Stewart said. “In the Main Event, I got a really good start we’re slowly starting to get these starts now and I’m really excited about that.”
“I know that we’re P5 but we’re still in the fight and we’ll be ready to go for Phoenix, it’s the Triple Crown baby! I’m excited for this one, it’s one of my favorite races and it’s always a good time. I love the stadium and just love the vibes there, so I’m really looking forward to it.”
