Tony Stewart has one more shot to extend his winning streak to 16 consecutive seasons, but he will have his work cut out for him after starting 28th.

Stewart has also struggled in practice. He posted only the 32nd-fastest time on Friday and was mid-pack in 26th midway through Saturday morning. It is difficult to make him a favorite even to finish among the top 10.

Tony Stewart had one of the fastest laps in Friday’s practice session, but he failed to back that up in qualification and rolls off the Quicken Loans 500k grid 29th. He was back near the top of the leaderboard in Saturday’s morning session with another top-10 time.

That describes Stewart’s overall weekend lately. He surges and wanes at various points in the weekend and it is difficult to think of him as being one of this week’s favorites. Stewart could be a strong dark horse and differentiator, however, for players who are willing to take a risk.

Tony Stewart set the new track record at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 200.111 mph. He posted that time in the second of three rounds of time trials.

Stewart could not quite back up his time in the third and final round that sets the pole for Sunday’s race, but he was fast enough to start sixth. Stewart won the pole for the spring Duck Commander 500 on this track and finished 10th, so he is one of this week’s top choices to finish in the top 10 again.

Tony Stewart earned his first top-10 since returning to the cockpit after the tragic events of the summer. He finished fourth in the Goody's 500 at Martinsville and now sets his sights on Victory Lane in one of the final three races to extend a streak of winning in each of 16 consecutive seasons.

There is a fairly significant difference between finishing in the top five and winning, but Stewart is certainly capable if the team gets his car right. His last victory came 39 races ago in the summer 2013 Dover FedEx 400.

NASCAR has assessed behavioral penalties to drivers Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart for their involvement in post-race incidents on Oct. 11 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Keselowski has been fined $50,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating: Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in post-race incidents. Stewart has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating: Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in a post-race incident.-NASCAR.com

The Grand Jury determining whether criminal charges were appropriate in the accident involving Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward Jr. that resulted in Ward’s death at Canandaigua Speedway has returned a no bill decision. "The grand jury has decided there is no basis to charge Tony Stewart with a crime," said District Attorney Michael Tantillo in a televised press conference.

Stewart will not face criminal charges and this matter should be concluded, which will allow him to focus on racing.

Tony Stewart has earned only one top-15 and no top-10s since returning to the cockpit of the No. 14 Chevrolet. He finished seventh in the spring FedEx 400 and won the 2012 edition of that race, so the statistics are in his favor.

Stewart has not only finished modestly since returning, he has not run very well in any of the past three races. He showed promise in his first effort back at Atlanta, but was caught up in a crash. That makes him a difficult fantasy pick this week for the AAA 400.

Tony Stewart spun out of turn four with 15 seconds remaining in practice for the Sylvania 300. He did not make contact with the wall and was able to drive back to the garage on flat tires.

After posting one of the slowest 10-lap averages in Saturday morning’s session, that is not how he wanted to end the day. He remains questionable as a fantasy pick for Sunday’s race.
Sep 20 - 12:24 PM

Tony Stewart posted the 26th-quickest, 10-lap average among 27 drivers who ran that long in Saturday morning’s practice session.

That put Stewart in the ballpark with Michael Annett, Landon Cassill, and Alex Bowman. Stewart’s status as even a dark horse for the Sylvania 300 must be called into question.

In a press conference prior to the first practice session for the Oral-B USA 500, NASCAR president Mike Helton announced that Tony Stewart will receive a waiver and would be eligible for a Chase berth if he wins one of the final two regular season races.

The waiver is a secondary concern for Stewart this week as he simply looks to return to a sense of normalcy by racing. In his press conference earlier in the day, Stewart was still visibly shaken by the fatal event that led to his three-week hiatus and until he gets inside the car, it is simply too soon for fantasy players to assess his ability to challenge for a top-10 position.

Tony Stewart will race for the first time in three weeks following a fatal accident in a sprint car event in upstate New York. He will be distracted by media attention, but should be considered a strong contender.

Stewart missed last year’s AdvoCare 500 because of a physical injury, but two of his past three Atlanta races ended in top-fives including a victory in 2010. Look for him to limit his availability to the media by spending a lot of time in the car and if his practice sessions are solid, do not shy away from starting him.

Tony Stewart has decided to return to racing this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. The Aug. 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the 1.54-mile oval will mark Stewart’s first start since Aug. 3 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

Stewart sat out the past three races at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn and Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway following the tragic accident on Aug. 9 involving Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car feature at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park. At 1 p.m. EDT on Friday in the infield media center at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Stewart will be available to the press, where he will be joined by Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood.-True Speed Communication

In a press conference broadcast at NASCAR.com Sunday morning, Greg Zippadelli reports that Tony Stewart will not race in the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. Regan Smith will take over the driving duties.

After being involved in a fatal incident, it is unlikely that Stewart would be able to concentrate to the degree needed and the team fully supports his decision. The team first reported that Stewart would race, but the change was made after further reflection. Stewart should be removed from all fantasy rosters.

Stewart-Haas Racing reports that Tony Stewart will race in Sunday’s Cheez-it 355k at the Glen after his involvement in a fatal sprint car accident at Canandaigua Motorsports Park Saturday night.

The team issued a statement that read, ""A tragic accident took place last night during a sprint car race in which Tony Stewart was participating. Tony was unhurt, but a fellow competitor lost his life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. We’re still attempting to sort through all the details and we appreciate your understanding during this difficult time." NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp has responded to the incident saying there is nothing at this time that would preclude Stewart from racing.
