Stewart-Haas Racing announced today that Austin Dillon will drive the No. 14 Mobil Chevrolet this weekend in the Pure Michigan 400, the August NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.
Dillon, the grandson of Richard Childress, will replace Tony Stewart, who sustained a broken right leg in a sprint car race last week in Iowa.
Dillon won the Camping World Trucks race last month at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, and currently leads the Nationwide Series standings.
