Stewart discusses progress with leg injury:

#14-Tony Stewart, still recovering from the last of three surgeries to repair his leg, will be in the Expo Hall at Memorial Coliseum even though he cant drive his black #2 Munchkin midget in the 16th Rumble in Fort Wayne, IN. Event organizer Tony Barhorst has declared the weekend A Salute to Tony Stewart in honor of Stewarts devotion to short-track racing, and hell sign autographs for a couple of hours today and Saturday. In between, hell watch his pal Lou Cicconi, the 2013 International Supermodified Association champion, wheel the Munchkin around, and wish it could be him. You know, when I first got hurt, I was hurt bad enough that it didnt really feel like that I had that sense that I was missing it, Stewart says. But now that Im closer to being healed, and ready to go, the more anxious I am to be in the car. But, Ive got a good friend of mine thats going to drive the car, and you know, to me, I still get to go. I still get to compete as a car owner. So Im still looking forward to it. And come February, to getting back in the car again. The last surgery was a couple of months ago, and the timetable has him back in the car in time for the Daytona 500. And so far the timetable looks good. It feels really good, actually, Stewart says. Id say the last three weeks in particular in therapy were really making big gains. So Im pretty happy with it.(Fort Wayne Journal Gazette)(12-28-2013)
