Sirius XM Radio: Tony Stewart to sit out Bristol; Jeff Burton in for second straight weekend

According to Sirius XM’s Dave Moody, Tony Stewart will miss his third straight Sprint Cup Series race in a row following the tragedy at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park.

Moody added on Sirius XM Radio today that fans should not expect Stewart back behind the wheel of his No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet till the investigation is complete. As a result, Jeff Burton will be driving the No. 14 Chevrolet for the second straight race in a row.

Stewart-Haas Racing Executive Vice President Brett Frood addressed the media last weekend at Michigan, stating that Stewart is dealing with a lot of emotions right now.

“It’s been an emotional week for him,” he said. “He’s grieving.  Anytime someone is lost, especially at a racetrack, it’s tragic.  It was a tragic accident, and he’s dealing with quite a bit of grief.”

Frood added that Stewart is “surrounded right now by his closest friends and family” right now, stating that he has been in contact with Stewart over the past week. Moving beyond Michigan, no decision has been made as that will be up to Stewart to decide when he wants.

“When he’s ready to get in the car, he’ll be in there, and we’ll go from there,” he commented.

Is this official? or just speculation by Moody? I haven't seen anything else about it yet...

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

Well I hope he is back racing ASAP because I believe he is missed by his fans, teammates, competitive drivers who 'hate' him, as well as the Sprint Cup announcers.

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

I am hoping when the investigation is over he decides to get back behind the wheel providing the County DA does not file charges because that will just add more pressure onto him and cause even more distraction to him. Depending on the outcome of the investigation and what the DA decides to do, we could see Tony soon or it could be awhile.

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

As much as I miss seeing Tony race on the weekends – watching NASCAR just isn’t the same without him behind the wheel of the #14, I find myself finding other things to do and missing large portions of the races now – I hope he doesn’t come back for any other reason than the urge to race fully outweighs all the grieving and negative feelings that he is most certainly feeling right now. It would be a shame if there was any other reason he returned to the racetrack than that he is fully ready to do so.

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

Sorry, I don't FB or Tweet or any type of social media other than this site. Part of what's lacking in the world is people not responding to people face to face. Way too easy to spew nonsense and bully others when you don't have to face them... That's how I feel anyway.

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

Yeah, well I hate to say it, but this is getting old. I hope they finish the investigation soon. Sooner or later his sponsors will want more than Burton for their money. Accidents or not, they're not going to keep throwing money at other drivers that was intended to sponsor Tony. Regardless of why, this is the 2nd August two years in a row he hasn't been in the car. While their hearts might be in the right place for now, I'm sure they answer to others that depend on the bottom line. As they say, business is business. I'm sure some of you won't like what I said, but that can't be helped, it is what it is, my opinion. However the investigation concludes, Tony knows what is true in his heart.

Re: Tony will miss Bristol....

I think Tony may as well sit out the rest of the season and just look for a fresh start next year.
In the meantime, can Jeff Burton be added to the roster in the weekly points pick game?
I feel he's gonna do some good things in that 14 car!

...and many people said the same thing about Mark Martin last year, although I was not one of them.
