Although Tony Stewart is not at Phoenix International Raceway this weekend as he recovers from his broken leg, Stewart and the Stewart-Haas Racing crew are nevertheless making their presence felt.
On the side of Stewart's No. 14 SHR Chevrolet, which is being driven by Mark Martin, is a decal honoring the 19 members of the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew who perished fighting a savage wildfire near the rural Arizona town of Yarnell earlier this year.

When Kevin Harvick announced he would be leaving Richard Childress Racing at the end of the 2013 season, the team vowed to remain focused on winning races and contending for the championship.
Throughout the season, both Harvick and RCR have been able to do just that. They have won three races and are currently third in the Chase heading into Sunday's race at Martinsville Speedway.
The good times and good feelings may have come to an abrupt end during Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, however.Keep Reading...

Now that the Chase for the Sprint Cup has arrived - complete with plenty of controversy - the subject of NASCAR's Silly Season has moved to the back burner somewhat. But it's still critically important as next year draws closer.
When the Chase is over in 10 weeks, doubtless there will be another frantic flurry of personnel movements, mostly around the crew chief position. For now, though, here are the five best moves already announced for 2014.Keep Reading...
Nothing can keep Tony Stewart down.
Not even a badly broken leg.
'Smoke' is back at the track this weekend for the first time since injuring his leg in a sprint car accident on Aug. 5.
Facing a long road to recovery, Stewart and his guys at Stewart-Haas Racing have developed quite a unique way to get around the race track - a modified scooter that is capable of running around 10 mph.
Before making its public debut this weekend in Richmond, Smoke tested the capabilities of his new ride in a few interesting ways.Keep Reading...
Tony Stewart met the press Tuesday afternoon and you could tell the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion must have been feeling good by the number of one-liners and zingers he launched in a lively 90-minute press conference.
Stewart, of course, has been out of action from the cockpit of the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet since suffering two compound fractures of his right leg in a sprint car crash in Iowa on Aug. 5.
When he came out and saw the assembled media at the team’s shop in Kannapolis, N.C., it was game on for Stewart.
“Oddly enough, I actually miss you guys, which tells you that I'm not healthy yet,” were the first words out of Stewart’s mouth. And it only got funnier from there.Keep Reading...

Tuesday's press conference at Stewart-Haas Racing to introduce Kurt Busch as the team's newest addition came as no surprise, as FOX Sports' Lee Spencer broke the story Monday afternoon.
However, Tuesday's formal announcement did shed some light on the decision-making process to add "The Outlaw" to an organization that already featured a cast of colorful characters.
Following the announcement, Danica Patrick and Kevin Harvick took to the Twitterverse to welcome their new teammate.
When asked by a fan, Harvick made it clear there was no love lost for Kurt's brother Kyle in this since-deleted tweet.Keep Reading...
When Kurt Busch parted ways with Penske Racing following an obscenity-laced tirade against a television reporter in the final race of 2011, his career appeared to have hit rock bottom.
Now, the 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion is the most coveted free agent in the garage.
As FOXSports.com's Lee Spencer reports, Busch already has been offered a contract extension by his current employer, Furniture Row Racing.
And Stewart-Haas Racing competition director Greg Zipadelli confirmed Friday morning at Bristol Motor Speedway that SHR founder and co-owner Gene Haas wants Busch to drive a fourth SHR car in 2014. In fact, Zipadelli said, an expansion of the team's facilities as begun in anticipation of Busch's arrival.
What's interesting about all this is that Stewart and Busch have had plenty of on-track issues already.Keep Reading...
