Jeff Burton will once again fill in for Stewart as an interim driver.

His team has said that Stewart is grieving in seclusion and there is no timetable for his return to driving in the Sprint Cup series. After Bristol, there are 12 more races on the 2014 schedule, including Atlanta next weekend and Richmond the following week.
