It appears that Tony Stewart’s chances of making this year’s Chase for the Sprint Cup are over. After suffering a broken right leg during wreck at a sprint car race in Iowa on Monday night, the three-time Cup champion will miss time behind the wheel. ESPN cites a medical expert that says Stewart’s broken tibia and fibula will require a second surgery in addition to the one he had following the wreck. The injury typically requires a healing time of between four and eight weeks, with just five races remaining before the Chase.
