HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (March 23, 2012) – James Stewart will not race round 12 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship this Saturday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON. Stewart, who suffered a crash at last weekend’s event in Indianapolis has been thoroughly examined by his medical team and the determination has been made that he is not yet ready to return to racing.
“Unfortunately injury is a part of sports,” said team owner Coy Gibbs. “The safety of our riders is our highest priority and we want James to have time to recover and not risk further injury by coming back too soon.”
Stewart’s teammate, Davi Millsaps will be on the gate in Toronto. SPEED will begin live coverage at 7:30 p.m. (EST).
