The award, determined by a vote of the NMPA membership, has been presented annually since 1958. Stewart, 42, suffered a broken right leg while competing in a sprint car race August 5 in Iowa. He subsequently underwent three surgeries, and is currently undergoing physical therapy. While he isn't scheduled to be back behind the wheel before the start of next season, Stewart has maintained his stance that he will be ready for the 2014 season-opening Daytona 500.-NASCAR PR
