James Stewart to NASCAR

Post by AntmanB on Wed Oct 26, 2011 5:30 pm

Motorcross star Stewart signs with Gibbs; NASCAR races planned: James "Bubba" Stewart has signed a multi-year contract to race with the motocross division of Joe Gibbs Racing, JGRMX. Additionally, JGRMX has extended its relationship with Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. racing exclusively Yamaha motorcycles through 2014. Stewart, who began racing at the age of four, is one of the most decorated riders in motocross history. "I am excited about joining the Gibbs racing family," said Stewart. "My goal in Supercross is to pass Jeremy McGrath's record of 72 Supercross wins. I am more than half way there and look forward to realizing that dream during my time with JGR. I have also had an interest in car racing and we are going to explore my potential in that sport through the NASCAR side of the operation."(JGR)
AND: In signing a multiyear deal with JGRMX, Stewart, 25, is expected to race full time on a bike for at least the next three seasons, but he will begin dabbling immediately in stock cars. A test in a Late Model car is scheduled in a few weeks, and he hopes to squeeze in races in the K&N and Nationwide Series (feeder circuits to Sprint Cup, NASCAR's premier series) as early as next season. Stewart's eventual transition from motorcycle racing to NASCAR might give a jolt of attention to a sport that actively craves a more diverse driver lineup. A charismatic black man in a mostly white sport, Stewart has starred in a reality TV show and has been among the few transcendent riders in Supercross.(USA Today)(10-26-2011)

And I thought Carmichael was bad. I have a feeling that James Stewart will be worse.

Never heard of him, but I heard of Carmichael before he got into NASCAR.

I should know about this guy, as he's from a sport Belgium actually dominates, yet I never heard about him. I can't see him be successful on four wheels straight away.

Wrong series. This is the dirt motorcycles, not MotoGP. This series, Stewart does well in.

MotoGP is dominated by the Spanish.

I honestly want him to do really well, because his personality means that NASCAR would have a VERY entertaining guy winning races.

I'm curious do see how he does. He would be the first driver since Bill Lester who still races.

You're right, I was thinking of the wrong series. But I was referring to Motocross, not MotoGP Wink

Do you think James Stewart will be affected by Gibbsism.

According to Coy Gibbs, Stewart will only run maybe one or two just to see if its something he'd be intersted in doing after Motocross. He's also doing that test at South Boston today.
And guys come on, he hasn't even started and you are already giving crap.

I'm hoping he doesn't become another Carmichael, who is pretty much known for crashing. If he does decide to come to NASCAR, I will be interested to see how he does.

Carmichael has been getting better. Martinsville was not really his fault.
