KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) - An upbeat Tony Stewart says he views his broken right leg as ``a small bump in the road'' and believes he's on pace to return to racing in time for next year's Daytona 500.
The three-time NASCAR champion made his first appearance Tuesday since his Aug. 5 injury in a sprint car crash in Iowa. He underwent two surgeries on a broken tibia and fibula and has been homebound for almost a month.
Stewart used a wheelchair to get around Stewart-Haas Racing before sliding into a chair on the stage for his news conference. It's the first significant injury for the 42-year-old owner/driver of SHR, who saw his streak of 521 consecutive starts come to an end with the injury.
