(CNN) - NASCAR driver Tony Stewart will return to the track this weekend, three weeks after hitting and killing a fellow driver.

Stewart has been out since the Aug. 9 crash that killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt track in western New York state.

The crash was ruled an on-track incident, and no charges were filed. The investigation into Ward's death is ongoing.

This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series comes to Georgia with a Sunday race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
