Stewart SX Injury Update, Out of Toronto

2012 AMA Supercross

During his heat race Saturday at Indianapolis for Round 11 of the 2012 AMA Supercross Championship, James Stewart was knocked out cold.

While stopped on the track, the Joe Gibbs / Toyota Yamaha rider was struck by GEICO Honda’s Kevin Windham, team reports say. Reports say Stewart didn’t have a concussion, but was sidelined due to the impact of the crash. Due to this, he was forced to miss Indy Supercross.

And now, his team reports that Stewart will also miss this Saturday’s round of the AMA Supercross Championship at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The team says Stewart was thoroughly examined by his medical team, and determined not fit for Toronto Supercross.

Coy Gibbs (JGRMX/Toyota Yamaha Team Owner) says: "Unfortunately injury is a part of sports. 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."

As the AMA SX field heads into Canada, Stewart is in third place in the overall championship with 177 points, 69 behind the leader, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto. Along with Stewart, another top rider will be missing from Toronto – Ryan Dungey. The Red Bull KTM rider underwent surgery before Daytona SX, and missed that round, Indy and now Daytona.
