Fantasy Tip: Stewart was starting to look like the Smoke of old for the past few weeks, but this last-place finish really splashes cold water on his momentum. However, he could bounce back for fantasy owners at Kansas Saturday, as he has two wins in 15 career starts at the suburban Kansas City circuit.

If it was getting ready for the race you would be a little more concerned," Stewart said. "It's just for qualifying. They pay the big check a week from tomorrow, not tomorrow." All three engines were from Hendrick Motorsports, and all three teams will now be forced to start from the back of the field for the race.

Stewart-Haas Racing driver Tony Stewart (leg) is scheduled to be back in a race car Friday, Feb. 14, for the first time since breaking his right leg last August. He'll be doing two practice sessions at Daytona International Speedway. Stewart said his leg is 65 percent healed, but his team is doing everything they can to make him comfortable in the No. 14 Chevrolet. A special pad was ordered to keep his knees from banging into the steering column. "The perfect scenario: everything would be healed 100 percent and we wouldn't be talking about it. But the bone is still about 65 percent healed right now. But as far as muscles and everything, the strength is coming much quicker than I thought it was going to be," Stewart said.
