Austin Dillon Will Take Stewart’s Place at Michigan
(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Austin Dillon will drive the No. 14 Chevrolet in place of the injured Tony Stewart during Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.
Stewart is out indefinitely after breaking his right leg Aug. 5 during a sprint car crash at Southern Iowa Speedway. Last weekend, Max Papis drove the No. 14 Chevy at Watkins Glen, finishing 15th.
"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 Stewart-Haas Racing. "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."
