KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) - Stewart-Haas Racing has tabbed Austin Dillon to drive Tony Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet this week at Michigan International Speedway.
Stewart continues to recover from a broken right leg suffered in a sprint car crash Aug. 5 at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) continues to field his No. 14 Chevrolet SS in the Sprint Cup Series. It will be Dillon's 10th Sprint Cup start.
The 23-year-old Dillon, who won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series title two years ago, competes this year in the Nationwide Series and currently holds the points lead.
Max Papis drove the No. 14 to a 15th-place finish Sunday at Watkins Glen International.
SHR has not determined who will drive the car at Bristol on Aug. 24.
No timetable has been established for Stewart's return, but the three-time Sprint Cup champion was discharged from the hospital late Sunday afternoon and is at home.
