APNewsBreak: Vickers to replace Tony Stewart at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Brian Vickers is expected to replace injured driver Tony Stewart for the NASCAR season opener at Daytona International Speedway, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

Stewart-Haas Racing has scheduled a Friday news conference to discuss its plans for the No. 14 Chevrolet. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the team is awaiting word from NASCAR on whether Vickers is medically cleared to race.
