Racer X has learned that James "Bubba" Stewart is planning on riding the 125cc East Region in the THQ/AMA Supercross Series and the AMA/Chevy Trucks 125cc National Motocross Championships. Stewart made the announcement himself at the Kawasaki Race of Championships this weekend at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, that he would be riding the new Kawasaki KXF250 in 2004.
Bubba has said before that his career goal is to be the only rider ever to win both 125cc East and West Region SX Championships, the 125cc Nationals, and both 250cc series. He also wants to be the all-time winningest rider in the 125 Nationals. He currently has 17 outdoor event wins (in 19 career races), which is nine short of Ricky Carmichael's all-time record of 26 wins in the class.
Also, Stewart is apparently not racing either class this weekend at the U.S. Open of Supercross. (Thanks to Chris for the tip!)
