Stewart-Haas Racing driver Tony Stewart (leg) suffered a broken right leg during a sprint car race Monday, Aug. 5, at Southern Iowa Speedway, and he will not race in the Sprint Cup Series event this weekend at Watkins Glen. Stewart broke his right tibia and fibula and underwent surgery. Stewart-Haas Racing hasn't announced a replacement for the No. 14 Chevrolet this weekend. Stewart is 11th in the Cup standings with five races to go until the Chase is set. A physician that works with drivers said weight bearing will be a challenge for Stewart for an injury that usually is "up to 12 weeks for a full recovery."
