UNDATED (AP) — The 2013 Sprint Cup season is over for Tony Stewart. The three-time Cup champion will miss the rest of the season because of broken bones in his right leg.

He will be replaced in the Stewart-Hass No. 14 car by Austin Dillon and Mark Martin. Stewart is expected to return in time for preseason testing in January 2014.

Stewart broke his right leg in a sprint car crash Aug. 5 in Iowa.
