Stewart drives the No. 14 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He sustained a broken right tibia and fibula in a Sprint Car crash Monday night at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Stewart was transported to a local hospital immediately following the accident and underwent surgery.
A scheduled test for today at Atlanta Motor Speedway has been canceled. A replacement driver for this weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International has not been determined.
NASCAR Country posted, "Racing is really dangerous and it takes a lot of courage. If you think racing isn't a sport, you're wrong."
