Is it NASCAR Silly Season already?

Tony Stewart won't be back any time soon after breaking his leg during a dirt track race.

Well this time last year, Matt Kenseth had already stated his intention to leave Roush Fenway Racing for Joe Gibbs Racing. He followed the path of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne, who in years previous were among those who cemented their future plans well before July.

There were a couple of important NASCAR announcements today: 

  • Stewart-Haas Racing announced that Tony Stewart will be out the remainder of the year.
    • Mark Martin will drive the No. 14 at Bristol and 11 other races. 
    • Austin Dillon will drive for Stewart at Talladega.
  • Michael Waltrip Racing announced that Brian Vickers will race 12 out of the 13 remaining races in the No. 55 car as Martin was enabled an early release to fill-in for Stewart.
