Stewart-Haas Racing | Mark Martin likely to fill in for Tony Stewart

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 10:24:04 -0700

Stewart-Haas Racing is working on a deal to finalize putting driver Mark Martin in the No. 14 Chevrolet to replace driver Tony Stewart (leg) for most, if not the rest, of the Sprint Cup season. Martin would be in the car starting in the Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend. An official announcement is expected to come Monday, Aug. 19. Martin has the support from Michael Waltrip Racing to leave the No. 55 car to fill in for Stewart. Martin would likely drive in every race Stewart missed aside from Talladega, where driver Austin Dillon could fill in.

Fantasy Tip: Martin gambled on fuel at Michigan International Speedway yesterday and wound up finishing second to Joey Logano. Martin can still be effective at the right tracks, and he'll have increased value, depending on the week, if he is cleared to drive for SHR for the rest of the season.
