WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.
His team, Stewart-Haas Racing, tweeted the news on Sunday night: ``TonyStewart is out of the hospital & resting as comfortably as he can at home. Thx for the thoughts & prayers.'' The tweet closed with a ``SmokeWillRise'' hashtag.
Stewart broke his right leg in two places last Monday night in a sprint car race in Iowa and is out indefinitely after two surgeries to repair the damage.
A five-time winner at Watkins Glen International, Stewart missed race Sunday, snapping his streak of 521 consecutive Cup starts and dropping him six spots to 17th in the Sprint Cup standings.
Max Papis drove Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet and finished 15th. Several drivers had stickers on their cars honoring Stewart with the message: ``Get Well Smoke 14.''
The team is expected to name a replacement driver for Stewart as early as Monday.
