KENNESAW, GA. (August 29, 2016) – It was a standout weekend for Team MicroBilt/PRBC Suzuki’s Ronnie Stewart in the season finale of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross National Championship Saturday at the Ironman MX National in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Stewart scored his best results of the season, earned a championship point and left Indiana happy with the progress he and his team made this season.

Stewart raced his MicroBilt/PRBC Suzuki RM-Z450 to 22-20 moto finishes earning him 24th overall. His 20th-place second moto finish marked his best race result of the summer and also earned him a championship point, one of the goals he wanted to accomplish by the end of the season. Stewart scored his solid moto result in spite of suffering a crash in the race. He was able to pick up his Suzuki and continue charging, making back nine positions by checkered flag.

Adding to the forward momentum by Stewart and the MicroBilt/PRBC Suzuki squad, was the fact that he qualified 15th at the Ironman, marking yet another season best.
“I feel great,” Stewart said after the races. “I couldn’t be happier than to end the season celebrating the small victories of improving each week. It’s feels great to have my best finish and be 15th in qualifying. To finish 20th and get a point after going down in the second moto and losing quite a few positions, it’s just great. I’m so excited to go into the off season healthy and am excited to see what’s in store for 2017. It was not the complete season I was hoping for, but I leave here with my head held high and looking forward to a better year in 2017.”

There were high hopes for Stewart coming into 2016, but a pre-season crash resulting in a serious wrist injury put the entire season in jeopardy. Stewart never quit and thanks to excellent medical care, rehabilitation and his training regimen, Stewart came back to racing well ahead of the schedule his care team predicted. There were setbacks along the way, but Stewart kept fighting and during the second half of the outdoor nationals the progress finally began showing in his results. In all he qualified for nine nationals in the premier 450 class.
Almost as exciting as scoring a national championship point at the Ironman, was Stewart’s performance in qualifying. He overcame muddy conditions early in the day to earn the 15th gate pick.

“It felt great to come out in the first session and qualify 15th,” Stewart explained. “The track was a little bit slower in the second session, so I wasn’t in a do-or-die situation. It gave me the chance to focus on trying different lines and move my concentration on to the motos.”
Stewart was running 18th in the second moto when he crashed and dropped all the way to 29th. He charged back up to 20th in the closing laps of the moto and admitted some nerves set in toward the end.

“I wanted to seal the deal,” Stewart said of his goal to at least score points in the event. “I rode a little tight those last two laps, but we accomplished the goal. I want to thank all my sponsors and everyone behind me for sticking with me through it all. It was a great character-building experience and I think it will help us get to the next level next season.”
The positive momentum should serve Stewart well as he begins preparations for 2017, where he hopes to take all he’s learned from this season and apply that when he’s fully healthy.
