The district attorney will announce late next week whether Stewart will face any charges.

The sheriff, Philip Povero, said the investigation he submitted to prosecutors included enhanced video.

Stewart took three weeks off from racing following the crash, making his return at the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta on Aug. 31. Before the race, he read a statement that said the crash is "something that will affect my life forever."
