Tony Stewart will officially sit out for the rest of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season in order to heal from a broken right tibia and fibula sustained in a sprint car crash earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Mark Martin will fill in for Stewart in every race the rest of the year except for Talladega, where Austin Dillon will take over. Dillon drove the No. 14 last weekend in Michigan, finishing 14th and on the lead lap despite being involved in the third caution and suffering a pit road speeding penalty.
Martin was released from his driving duties for the No. 55 car at Michael Waltrip Racing in order to drive for SHR. Brian Vickers, who will drive the No. 55 car full-time in 2014, will finish out the rest of the year in every race except for Talldega. Michael Waltrip is scheduled to drive the car in the Oct. 20th event.
Stewart is expected to return to competition during preseason testing in January 2014.
