Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will race at Richmond International Raceway this weekend, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

“Well, the long wait is over,” Stewart wrote. “I’ll be back in my @Mobil1 Chevy this weekend at Richmond. I can’t wait to race again.”

Stewart missed the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with a fractured vertebra. He injured his back in a non-racing accident, sustaining a “burst fracture of the L1 vertebra” after crashing an all-terrain vehicle in January. He later had surgery.

Stewart, 44, is retiring at the end of this season.
