James Stewart Out for Budds CreekWednesday, June 14, 2006 | 5:34 PM
Irvine, Calif., ( June 14, 2006 ) – 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 Motocross National
Championship at Budds Creek MX Park, in 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
“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.”
