12:24 PM ET 10.09 | On Monday, Tony Stewart underwent surgery for a third time following his scary car crash in early August. The results have been looking promising, as Stewart is expected to fully recover and be able to race next season. His first two surgeries were over two months ago, on Aug. 6, and 8, so as long as there aren't any setbacks, he could be back on the track soon.

microsurgery?

This has been a slow and painful recovery for Tony.....and his right leg too......I wonder if he will ever be able to drive the same again, after healing.

Wish him a full recovery and a return to his version of normal.

I didn't realize that he has 3 kids........hope they did not see any of that.........and he's also charged with "unlawful confinement".........what does that mean?.........tied up in the basement?........that could be interpreted many ways.

I always thought of Kvapil as a young kid.......never paid much attention to him, but he's only a year younger than Jr.......You sure learn a lot when someone gets arrested.

Kvapil and his team mate Reutimann both had logos on their cars for "ending breast cancer and Domestic Violence".......the ads promoting this have now been removed.

Hate to hear news like this.

Seriously, with all the current news in Nascar we get a story about a driver who isn't driving?

Sadly, this isn't unusual with this kind of fracture. Pins and rods go in, things have to be cleaned up, etc.

When it gets to be surgury #5,6, and 7, then you start to worry.

Dario Franchitti was released from Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in Houston and will be transported to Indianapolis for evaluation. Franchitti also suffered a concussion and fractured vertebrae that will not require surgery

Thanks for that pic Wildfan.
Alex Tagliani will be replacing him for now.

And Kvapil is out of jail and will be racing this weekend at Charlotte.......he must be distracted though, he qualified 41st instead of the usual 30's.

Stewart was released from an undisclosed North Carolina hospital Thursday afternoon, three days after surgery to close a wound on his right shin suffered Aug. 5 in a sprint car crash at Southern Iowa Speedway. The third surgery was necessitated because Stewart's injured right leg was not healing as quickly as it should be
