Tony Stewart continues to recover from the back injury suffered in an ATV accident a few weeks ago. He gave an update on his progress with a phone call to the FOX television crew during Sunday's Daytona 500 broadcast. "[I] don't even get X-rayed again until March 9," Stewart said.
"So we're really not going to know what the progress of the bone is. Myself personally I've been up getting around a lot each day, I can tell a noticeable difference each day from the previous day so I am feeling a lot better and [am] on a mission to get back to the race track. That's probably been the hardest part of the last 10 days is not being at the track, not seeing the officials, guys from the other team, everything from Speedweeks." MRN
