Tony Stewart sustained a burst fracture of the L1 vertebra in his ATV accident this past Saturday. He was transported to a North Carolina hospital Tuesday and underwent surgery Wednesday.

While he is able to move all his extremities and is expected to make a full recovery, he will not race during the beginning part of the 2016 season. No details have been finalized yet on a replacement driver.
