The following is an industry press release from Yoshimura Suzuki...

Stewart to focus on recuperation and preparation for outdoor motocross season

Chino, CA (April 21, 2016) – Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart will sit out the final three rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season to focus on preparing for the start of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, which kicks off on Saturday, May 21 at the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, Calif.

“James has a hairline fracture in his ankle and he aggravated his back injury from his Daytona crash last week in St. Louis,” said Yoshimura Suzuki team manager Mike Webb. “Clearly, he needs time to heal up and get ready for Hangtown.”

Stewart has been battling injury most of the Supercross season. Despite his setbacks he’s shown flashes of his characteristic speed. Stewart said even though everything in him wants to be at the final Supercross rounds, he recognizes it’s the best decision.

“I want to be out there racing,” Stewart explained. “My fans and sponsors are important to me, but ultimately I need to focus on getting completely healed up and be solid and ready to go the next time I roll up to the starting gate at Hangtown.”

That's the looooooooooong version.  The short version is Stewart needs some time to tidy up his resume and start knocking on some doors.
