Stewart In Iowa Hospital

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is recovering in an Iowa hospital after being involved in a four-car wreck during a sprint car race at Southern Iowa Speedway last night.  Stewart was leading the 30-lap race but was spun out in Turn 4 and sent tumbling.  Track officials say the three-time Sprint Cup champion was conscious before being placed on a stretcher.  Stewart also had a sprint car wreck last week at Ohsweken Speedway in Ontario, Canada.
