WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Two-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will race in North Dakota for a third time this summer.

Stewart races occasionally at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo. Operations there are handled by the father of Donny Schatz, who has won championships for Stewart on the World of Outlaws sprint car circuit.

Stewart raced a late-model at the dirt track in June and a sprint car earlier this month, and Stewart's spokesman, Bill Klingbeil, tells The Forum newspaper (http://bit.ly/qNLRXm ) that the racer nicknamed Smoke will return to the track on Wednesday.

Stewart will race a sprint car again, against several top drivers including Schatz. Schatz is coming off his fifth Knoxville Nationals crown over the weekend.
