Stewart Visits Toronto Boys & Girls Club

AMA Supercross Charity

Besides being busy prepping for the weekend’s AMA Supercross race at Rogers Centre in Toronto, San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart and Kyle Regal were also busy with the team’s Community Outreach Program.

On Friday, Stewart and Regal visited St. Alban’s Boys & Girls Club in Toronto, educating nearly 100 children of all ages.

During the event, Stewart and Regal talked about their “journey to Supercross, riding for Team San Manuel, and what it takes to keep them in top performance.”

James Stewart (San Manuel Yamaha Supercross) says: “It takes a lot of practice and hard work to get good at something and I’ve had a lot of support from my family. But I wasn’t ever allowed to ride until I had all my homework and chores done.”

And Stewart’s words should inspire, considering he has 40 Supercross wins and several hundred wins in his overall racing career.

Regal, who hasn’t raced since Daytona SX due to being injured at practice for that round, talked about proper eating to the children.

Kyle Regal (San Manuel Yamaha Supercross) says: “Eating right is just like putting gasoline into your car. You want to make sure you put the best things possible in your body so you can do well.”

During the meeting, Stewart and Regal also signed autographs and posed for pictures with the kids. The following evening, Stewart finished fourth in Toronto after suffering two crashes. As for Regal, he is expected to return to action next weekend in Arlington, Texas.

San Manuel Yamaha says: “The Outreach Program is intended to teach children healthier lifestyles by eating right, exercising, studying, working hard, and having goals. Both Stewart and Regal will be visiting several other Boys & Girls Clubs across the country throughout the year.”
