KENNESAW, GA. (August 15, 2016) – The historic Unadilla National saw Team MicroBilt/PRBC Suzuki’s Ronnie Stewart score season highs in both qualifying and moto finish, continuing the steady comeback from injury for the rider from Easton, Pennsylvania. Stewart qualified 20th and then went on to finish 25th overall in the 450 National aboard his MicroBilt/PRBC Suzuki RM-Z450 with 26-22 moto finishes.

The 22nd-place result for Stewart in the second moto marked his highest motocross finish of the 2016 season. He was also within shouting distance of a points-paying result.

Unadilla is an iconic venue in American motocross racing, having hosted Grand Prix races as well as AMA Pro MX Nationals dating back to the 1970s. While Stewart admits the track itself is not one of his favorites, he grew up racing in the northeast, so he always sees a lot of old friends, sponsors and racing buddies at the scenic upstate New York circuit.
The weekend at Unadilla began with Stewart also earning a season high 20th in 450 class qualifying.

“That was my best qualifying result of the season,” Stewart said. “It was nice not to be on the bubble, plus it put me in a good position for a decent gate pick. I was proud of that. It was a good feeling.”

The first moto saw Stewart pushing hard, but running off the track a couple of times as a result. “It was a little bit of a battle in that first moto, but I got through,” Stewart explained.
Stewart knew if he could clean up a few of the errors that cost him positions in the first moto, that his second could potentially be better and it was.

“I didn’t necessarily get a great start,” Stewart said. “But I was able to get out there and get going and was able to focus and not make the mistakes I made in the first moto. I was picking guys off as I was going through and there were people for me to chase throughout the moto and that helped me stay motivated.”

In the end Stewart left Unadilla with upward momentum, seeing that he’s getting ever closer to one immediate goal of scoring national points.

“I felt good physically and it was awesome to see the improvements,” Stewart concluded. “In the second moto the 21st-place guy (Colton Aeck) and I were able to chase down the 20th-place rider (Zack Williams) and we all battled to the end. Even though I didn’t get them, it felt good to know I was so close to a points-paying position. And considering it was on a track where I’ve historically not done well, it feels even better. I’m looking forward to Budds Creek and Indiana. Those are two tracks that I really enjoy.”

The Pro Motocross Championship resumes this coming Saturday at the Budds Creek National, not far from the nation’s capital. Live coverage begins at 10:00 am Eastern on www.promotocross.com. The motos can also be viewed on MAVTV and NBCSN.
