James Stewart Out For Thunder Valley

Irvine, Calif. (July 21, 2005) ¿ After careful consideration, it has been decided that Team Kawasaki rider James Stewart will not be competing in the AMA Motocross event in Lakewood, Colo., this weekend. Stewart, who struck his head on the ground during a crash in the first 250 moto at Unadilla last weekend, immediately began to feel the effects of a possible head injury. After evaluation from on-site physicians, it was determined that Stewart should not race until he had an opportunity to further consult with his personal physician. 

Following an additional evaluation today, Stewart¿s physician would not release him to race this weekend as additional tests are needed to determine the extent of his injury.
