NASCAR driver Tony Stewart will return to the track this weekend, nearly three weeks after hitting and killing a fellow driver.

Stewart has been out since the August 9, crash that killed Kevin Ward, Jr. at a dirt track in New York state. The crash was ruled an "on track incident", and no charges were filed.

This weekend, NASCAR comes to Georgia with a Sunday race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The investigation into Ward's death is ongoing.
