James Stewart Sidelined Indefinitely

James Stewart has announced he will not race again until he feels 100% ready to hit the race track.

In a statement posted on his social media pages, Stewart confirmed that he tried to race the fourth round of the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross Championship in Oakland on Saturday night to see where he was at.

As we know Stewart pulled out of the main event at the half way mark of the race and looked frustrated as he left the track.

Below is the statement Stewart released early this afternoon.

"Just wanted to update you guys on what happened Saturday night. I could tell from the 1st practice that things weren't right from my A1 incident. But I figured if I kept riding things would get better.

Well as the night went on things got worse and that's what led me to pull off in the main. The worst part is, you never know how you're gonna feel until you try. So that's why I decided to try to race this weekend.

You can practice during the week all you want but racing is completely different.

It's my fault tho because instead of letting things heal 100%, I keep rushing to race for my fans and because I love to race. Clearly I'm not ready to race and After Saturday I felt like an idiot for trying to when I know I shouldn't.

I can tell you that I rather never race again if I have to pull off like last Saturday. To me a person that pulls off is a quitter and as much as I hate quitters, I felt like one afterwards until I thought about everything.

I shouldn't of have been there in the first place. I was there bc I'm not a quitter and I keep trying to be superman for no reason. But it doesn't matter anymore bc the people around me know who I am and my "real" fans know also. So at this point, I'm gonna listen to my body and come back when IM ready to race.

It could be this weekend or a month from now but I'm gonna do what's best for me and not what's best for the rest. I love you guys and I truly appreciate your support always. I came back to race and have fun this year and racing when I can't function 100% isn't racing or fun.

So I'll be back when I can do both of those things like the real js7 does.

I want to personally thank all my sponsors for sticking behind me through all of this. I know you guys say I don't need too thank u but it's nice to have all of you in my corner always. And my fans, you know where my heart is and I can't wait to be healthy so we all can enjoy the results together like always.

Thx again peeps. "
