LOS ANGELES, CA - Official word from the Team San Manuel Yamaha office confirms James Stewart will race Anaheim 2, Round 3 of the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, round this weekend.  The decision was made today after a week-long intensive physical therapy program to help him recover quickly from injuries sustained during the Phoenix race. Said Stewart  “I don't want to let my fans or my Team down. They've been really supportive this week while I did what I needed to do. I'm close enough to the points lead and I need to be out there if I'm going to have a shot at another Championship.”
