Report: Tony Stewart still scheduled to race Sunday at Watkins Glen

5 Comments

Reports have emerged ahead of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen that Tony Stewart will still race, despite last night’s eventual fatality at a dirt track in upstate New York.

Stewart-Haas Racing competition director Greg Zipadelli told USA Today Sports’ Jeff Gluck, “We’re business as usual today.”

A recap of what occurred last night can be found here, with my MotorSportsTalk colleague’s Jerry Bonkowski’s analysis of the situation here.

Stewart, incidentally, missed last year’s Watkins Glen race – albeit due to his injury suffered at a dirt track race only weeks previous.
