Malcolm Stewart sustained a broken femur in Saturday night’s crash in Round 2 of the Supercross season in Glendale, Ariz. according to reports at RacerXOnline.com.
Stewart was running fourth at the time of his accident when he lost control in the whoops and went down hard at the end of the section.
He was attended to by the Mobile Medical Crew and waved to the crowd as he was carted off the track.
He is scheduled to undergo surgery on Sunday.
The NTT IndyCar Series is racing just outside of St. Louis this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway Gateway.
The last oval race of the season, tonight’s Bommarito Auto Motive Group promises to bring plenty of high-speed, high-stakes racing action under the lights.
Series point leader Josef Newgarden will start tonight’s race from the pole position, with Sebastian Bourdais starting alongside him in row one.
By winning the pole, Newgarden gained an additional championship point, which extends his lead over Alexander Rossi to 36 points.
Rossi start’s tonight’s race from the 11th position after an uncharacteristically poor qualifying run for the No. 27 team, while Simon Pagenaud (third in the standings, 41 points behind) will start from the fourth position and Scott Dixon (fourth in the standings, 53 points behind) will start from eighth.
