Irvine CA – After careful consideration, it has been decided that
Kawasaki Racing Team rider James Stewart will not be competing at the
fourth round of the AMA National Motocross Championship at Budds Creek
MD this weekend. Stewart, who put forth an epic performance last
weekend by posting a fourth overall finish despite a deep bone bruise
in his left knee, began feeling recurring pain and stiffness early this
week. Although Stewart remains determined to race, it was decided by
the team that Stewart should not race until his leg has had the
appropriate amount of time to heal properly according to his
physician’s recommendations.

“James has shown amazing determination and we appreciate that” said
Kawasaki Racing Team Manager, Mike Fisher. “However, we also know that
if he continues to ride on an injured knee, he may likely be riding in
pain all season and ultimately needs more time to recuperate.”
