Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing finally gats back to a two-rider lineup for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship as the series visits Muddy Creek Raceway for the Tennessee National, but James Stewart will sit this one out.
Blake Baggett will return to the squad alongside fill-in rider Matt Bisceglia while Bubba stays home in Florida with his wife for the pending birth of their baby.
“It will be great to have Blake back with us in Tennessee,” said Yoshimura Suzuki team manager, Mike Webb. “And with Matt filling in again, the weekend will be full of activity taking care of two riders and that’s the way we like it.”
This will be Baggett’s first race back since round two at Glen Helen, where he bravely rode just days after surgery on a broken collarbone. For Bisceglia this will be his third race as a sub with Yoshimura Suzuki. He’s filled in admirably with some solid motos to his credit.
Last year Baggett scored a strong fourth-place result and is a former podium finisher at Muddy Creek in the 250 class. Bisceglia scored a top-10 finish in the 250 National a year ago.
All at Dirt Bike Rider send their best wishes to James and his wife.
