MALCOLM STEWART MAKES TOP 10 AT DAYTONA | Latest | News | Race Reports

Husqvarna's Malcolm Stewart had a season-best seventh at Daytona for Round 8 of the AMA Supercross. Is this the comeback?

A season-best seventh position for Malcolm Stewart at Daytona has continued a mid-season return to form at Round 8 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider taking his third top-10 result in a row. Does this mean Malcolm Stewart has found the speed at Daytona that he needs to compete with the top guys?
Malcolm Stewart has been gaining race fitness and comfort as the 450SX season approaches its middle stages, powering his Husqvarna Motorcycles FC 450 Rockstar Edition to fourth place in the Heat Race at Daytona. The Main Event was just as promising, overcoming grueling track conditions to claim P7 and make further inroads on the front-runners after missing much of last season through injury.

“Being the closest race to a hometown weekend for me, Daytona treated me okay,” Stewart said. “The Heat wasn’t too bad, vision was kind of tough being where I was, but we made some passes and ended up fourth in that one. Main Event, the track went away really fast and it was a typical, really hard Daytona. At the end of the day, we ended up P7 – it could have been better, could have been worse. My headspace is okay, we’re going to look forward to Alabama, get back to regular Supercross, and get back up front.”
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing 450SX regular Christian Craig is scheduled to undergo surgery next week on his ongoing elbow injury, which will extend his time on the sidelines. They look forward to welcoming him back to racing once he is healed and healthy to line up again.
