Tony Stewart will miss the start of his final NASCAR season after fracturing his back in an accident on an all-terrain vehicle, Stewart-Haas Racing said Thursday. The three-time NASCAR champion sustained a ”burst fracture of the L1 vertebra” when he crashed on an ATV Sunday and he had surgery Wednesday, the team said. A timetable for Stewart’s return has not been determined, but SHR said he is expected to make a full recovery and race this year.

Bruton Smith, the colorful chairman of Speedway Motorsports Inc., delighted the audience with an off-the-cuff speech Saturday while accepting his place in NASCAR’s Hall of Fame, touching on everything from his building of Charlotte Motor Speedway to his unwavering support of Coca-Cola. Smith, who owns eight tracks that host 12 Sprint Cup Series events, had steadfastly maintained he didn’t care about making NASCAR’s Hall of Fame as he repeatedly failed to make the ballot of nominees. Smith discussed the difficulty in financing the building of a race track, only to see it completed and not have enough money to keep it open.

Tony Stewart is a man at peace as he heads into the final season of his NASCAR career. Stewart is also adamant that his struggles the last two years, on and off the track, have nothing to do with his decision to retire at the end of this season.
