Stewart-Haas Racing announced Monday, Aug. 12, that driver Austin Dillon will fill in for driver Tony Stewart (leg) in the Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway Sunday, Aug. 18. "I've watched Austin for many years and at each stage of his racing career, he's been successful," Stewart said in a statement from SHR. "He's proven to be a very fast learner, and he's able to adapt quickly. Being the youngest champion in the history of the Truck series is proof of that." It's unclear who will drive the car next week at Bristol Motor Speedway.
