Supercross champ James Stewart to hold fan Ride Day in Riverside
Supercross champion James "Bubba" Stewart will spend most of Saturday riding and mingling with fans during what is simply called Ride Day at Milestone MX Park in Riverside.
The event is from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. There will be no formal autograph session or any real structure. It's merely a day set aside by the 2009 AMA SX champion to allow fans a chance to get to know him personally.
"During race season, we're busy. There's not much time," said Stewart, who will make his X Games debut later this summer. "I thought it would be cool to have a whole day where my fans and I can ride together and have some fun. I know a lot of them love to ride too.
"This event is open to everyone, whether they want to ride or just watch, so I'm hopeful a lot of people will come out and see me."
The park has a capacity limit so early arrival might be key to actually getting in.
In keeping with the theme, lunch will be served by Chuy's Mexican restaurant of Temecula, owned by Steve Barlow. Barlow is a pro racer in The Off-Road Championship (TORC) series and a Red Bull Racing Team owner. Stewart is among many Red Bull-sponsored riders.
Ride Day is free to Milestone Park members but there's a $10 spectator fee for nonmembers.
