During a rare off week for the Sprint Cup Series next week, one thing is a good bet.

You won't see Tony Stewart anywhere...

"I'm going to be invisible," promised Stewart, who is eighth in the Cup championship standings in his first year as an owner/driver with Stewart-Haas Racing. "I'm leaving town. I don't know what (crew chief) Darian (Grubb) and the guys are going to do.

"I'm sure they're going to work their tails off like they always do. But I'm going to get away. I need a break right now. It's perfect timing for a break after this weekend."

Stewart, who has won twice at Atlanta, qualified 11th for Sunday's race.
