Facebook

Tony Stewart, driver of the Stewart-Haas No. 14 Chevrolet in NASCAR’s Premier Series, broke the tibia and fibula bones in his right leg Monday night in a Sprint Car crash at a dirt track in Oskaloosa Iowa. 

Stewart was racing at Southern Iowa Speedway when the accident occurred. He was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery to stabilize the injury, he will also need a second surgery to repair the damage done.

On Tony Stewart’s Facebook Page, he had this message for fans…

I told someone to go get my phone or else I was going to get up and get it myself. Finally got reconnected to the world and just want to say thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. My team will remain strong and I will be back.”

Stewart was leading the 30 lap ASCS Feature race when a lap car spun. Tony hit the lap car and that began the brutal crash that flipped his car.

The injury will prevent Stewart from driving in the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen. Veteran racer Max Papis will take over driving duties in the No. 14 Chevrolet for the event.

We will keep you posted when we hear any new news.
