Weston Peick and Malcolm Stewart impress at Houston Supercross
Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing‰Ûªs Weston Peick scored a second consecutive top-five finish at the second round of the 2018 AMA Supercross series in Houston, Texas on Saturday night as Malcolm Stewart impressed in his first fill-in race for the team.

Peick continues to hone his Supercross skills throughout the week and the effort is paying dividends. With a fifth-place heat race finish, Peick put himself in a great position for the Main Event. When the gate dropped, his Suzuki RM-Z450 rocketed to a third-place start and he kept pace with the early leaders while riding a smart race. Peick crossed the finish line in fifth ‰ÛÒ his second top-five finish in as many tries ‰ÛÒ and currently sits tied for fourth in the point standings.

‰ÛÏThis weekend went well for me," Peick said. "The goal was to back-up my top-five finish from Anaheim 1, and I succeeded. The track was technical and constantly breaking down, with big whoops and lots of ruts. Houston proved that I can handle the ever-changing conditions. I‰Ûªm excited for Anaheim 2. My next target is to get on the podium. With good starts and consistent lap times I should be able to achieve that. I‰Ûªm really gelling with the RM-Z450 and I like the progress that we‰Ûªre making.‰Û

Malcolm Stewart finished 11th in his first fill in ride for the Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing team
News broke early in the week that 2016 AMA 250 East Supercross Champion Malcolm Stewart was brought on board to fill in for the injured Justin Bogle and ‰Û÷Mookie‰Ûª didn‰Ûªt disappoint, scoring seventh in his heat race and 11th in the Main. That is very credible for a rider who only had a few days of testing the Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450. The ever-popular Stewart will set his sights higher this weekend.

‰ÛÏI tell you, going eight months without a gate drop feels like forever!" Stewart said. "It‰Ûªs great to be back doing what I love to do. I have to give a huge shout out to the Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing Team for giving me the opportunity to race. I appreciate the fans for sticking by me through thick and thin. The Houston fans made me feel like I was home again, so thanks! I‰Ûªm looking forward to getting more time on the bike and making a big impact at Anaheim 2.‰Û
