Factory Racing announced today that James Stewart will sit out the final round of the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross season next weekend in Lake Elsinore, CA. Due to recent injury, the Yoshimura Suzuki rider plans to take time to fully recover so that he can focus his efforts on preparing for the upcoming AMA/FIM Supercross season, which starts in January 2014.

“This was a tough call to make,” said Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing Team Manager Mike Webb. “Especially since we’ve had some good momentum going after the win at Millville. But as a team, we all agreed that after the setbacks at the last two races, James’ time would be best spent recovering so that he can focus on Supercross testing in September. After that, we can turn all of our attention to winning the Supercross championship in 2014.”
