Stewart set to return to racing

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway. That will end a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race.

     The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug. 9 sprint car event in New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway. 

     Stewart, who was described by police as "visibly shaken" the night of Ward's death, has been in seclusion ever since.
