CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Sunday's Sprint Cup race will go on without Tony Stewart.

The 2011 Sprint Cup champ says he will not race at Michigan International Speedway, skipping a second straight NASCAR race since striking and killing a driver in a dirt-track race at a small New York track.

His plans for the rest of the season have not been determined.

Jeff Burton will drive Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet in Michigan.

Stewart also sat out Sunday at Watkins Glen, a day after he struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car event in Canandaigua, New York.
