SoVaNow.com / August 14, 2014
Tony Stewart has decided not to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event this weekend at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.

Veteran driver Jeff Burton, a winner of 21 Sprint Cup races and a South Boston native, will drive in place of Stewart.

This driver change pertains only to Michigan. Stewart's plans for upcoming Sprint Cup races have yet to be determined. The announcement, made by Stewart-Haas Racing Thursday night, will be followed by a press conference Friday at 10 a.m. EDT with Burton and team officials at the Michigan track.
