The news out of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen International was that Tony Stewart’s broken leg is now believed to be much worse than originally reported.

Now the talk throughout the NASCAR garage is that Stewart will be out of the No. 14 Stewart Haas Racing Chevrolet through the end of the 2013 season.

The three-time series champion is in hospital in Charlotte, N.C., where he went through a second surgery earlier this week to repair two breaks in his right leg suffered when he crashed in a sprint car race at Southern Iowa Speedway last Monday night.
