Tony Stewart plans to race in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen, N.Y., after the sprint car he was driving killed a fellow driver late Saturday night at Canandaigua, N.Y.

Stewart's racing team manager Greg Zipadelli said Stewart will race in NASCAR's event Sunday at Watkins Glen, calling the race "business as usual," the Associated Press reported.

CNN reported Stewart is planning to hold a news conference at 1 p.m. ET, to address the situation.
