Malcom Stewart has been fine $5000 and put on probation for the remainder of the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supcross Championship after a run in with Honda counter-part Justin Barcia at Daytona on Saturday night.

After being taken down by Barcia in a racing accident during the nights main event, Stewart showed his disapproval of Barcia's attempted pass by first shoving Barcia, before launching his bike into Barcia as he turned his TLD Honda around to continue the race.

It is the second time this season Stewart has made physical contact with a rider after a crash, also giving Rookie rider Cooper Webb a shove after crash between Stewart and the Yamaha youngster at round four of the West Coast 250SX championship earlier this year held in Oakland.

The AMA issued the following statement regarding the penalty handed down to Stewart.

"Following a thorough review, the AMA has penalized Haines City, Fla.'s Malcolm Stewart (No. 34) for an AMA Supercross Rulebook violation that took place during the 450SX main event of the 10th round of the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, in Daytona Beach, Fla., on March 8.

"It was determined that Mr. Stewart violated Appendix A2, Section C, parts 9, 10 and 17 of the 2014 AMA Supercross Rulebook.

"These sections state, in part:

"9. Engaging in any unfair practice, misbehavior or action detrimental to the sport of motorcycling in general, whether or not related to a specific competition event.

"10. An attack on a racing official and/or engaging in a fight. This includes any person who attacks or is involved in a fight anywhere on the premises prior to, during or after a Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship meet. There will be no maximum fine or suspension period for this offense.

"17. Riding on or off the track at any time in such a manner as to endanger the life or limb of other riders, officials or the public.

"In light of the seriousness of these violations, and in recognition of the warning issued to Mr. Stewart for a similar violation that took place at the fourth round of the championship on Jan. 25 in Oakland, Calif., Mr. Stewart has been fined $5,000 and placed on probationary status for the remainder of the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season.

The incident on Saturday night was not the first time Stewart and Barcia have had issues with each other on track, with the two riders also coming together heavily on a couple of occasions at the final round of the 2013 American motocross championship in an incident that left Barcia on the ground.
