Max Papis to drive for Tony Stewart at Watkins Glen


Veteran racer Max Papis will serve as the interim driver Tony Stewarts No. 14 Chevrolet this weekend at Watkins Glen. Papis tested the No.14 Chevrolet on July 30 at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga.

Stewart broke his right tibia and fibula on Monday night during a sprint car race in Iowa. He underwent surgery immediately following the accident, and a second surgery will be necessary. Stewart was leading the 30-lap American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) feature when a lapped car spun in front of him. Stewart hit the lapped car and flipped.

Stewart sits 11th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings, with one win leading for the first Wild Card position with five races to go before the championship field is set.
