(Hampton, GA) -- Tony Stewart is returning to the track. The embattled NASCAR driver will drive in Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Stewart has missed the circuit's last three races after his car struck and killed 20-year-old driver Kevin Ward Jr. in a dirt-track race earlier this month in upstate New York. Ward had gotten out of his car and wandered onto the track with the race under caution to seemingly confront Stewart for spinning him out.
