05:30 PM ET 08.10 | After driver Tony Stewart suffered a broken leg earlier this week, the brass at Stewart-Haas racing announced that they'll be tapping multiple drivers to fill in for Stewart in the No. 14 car. Max Papis was the first driver selected for the job, but reports on Saturday indicate that Austin Dillon, who is expected to become a full-time Cup competitor in 2014, may be next in line. Dillon, who recently won the Mudsummer Classic at Stewart's Eldora Speedway, didn't reveal much when asked about if he'd been approached by Stewart-Haas, but he did indicate that he'd like the opportunity to be a stand-in for Stewart.

'Marshall' Dillon may want to clear it with Grand-pa 1st

WOW.. maybe Tony should get hurt more often.. 2 threads in 1 day and 3 in 4 days

Not sure Mr. C would want his grand son helping Tony out after Tony takes his best driver (Harvick)......but Jr would have no probs helping his pal Tony....they're all part of the HMS gang anyways.

In any case, Regan Smith is a much better choice.

Also, same scheduling conflicts for Dillon as for Smith.

Would Dillon's gi-normous cowboy hat fit into Tony's car?

The use of the name "Tony" in that spam ad is a fluke......bound to get it "topic right" once a year.

lol you gotta catch him to do that. Brad K tried to act like he did some act of kindness but he tried, he bumped him, just couldn't quite get there to him. Love him or hate him, 18 wheeled it today.

Racing is a lot of luck -- case inpoint when KY Boy pitted just before the yellow while the Aussie was leading ... changed the whole complexion of the race. But the Aussie had suspension issues at the end anyway ...

Bad day for the HMS drivers -- except for JJ ...

A.J.Allmendinger would make sense. He's not under contract to anyone and would be auditioning.
