NASCAR's Tony Stewart will sit out for a 2nd week of racing as the investigation continues into his deadly on-track crash.
Stewart's team announced today that Jeff Burton will drive the number 14 car in his place this weekend in Michigan. 
Last weekend, Stewart hit and killed another driver during a dirt track race in New York. 
Jeff Burton said, “to have the most success in a difficult situation, my ultimate goal is to somehow help the healing process.”
No criminal charges have been filed against Stewart, but this is the 2nd race Stewart is sitting out.
