4 He Always Speaks His Mind. On several occasions through the years, Tony Stewart has taken issue with fellow competitors and various rules. Remember that time in 2006 when he called
a young David Ragan “a dart without feathers” after Ragan was
involved in multiple dust-ups in a race at Martinsville Speedway?
Or, we must not forget that time in 2012 when Stewart went on an
epic, tongue-in-cheek post-race rant in which he chided fellow drivers
for not wrecking enough competitors to please fans at Talladega Superspeedway. “If we haven’t crashed at least 50 percent of the field by
the end of the race, we need to extend the race until we at least crash
50 percent of the cars,” Stewart said sarcastically. Yep, that’s Tony.
5 He Truly Loves Racing. In addition to his own driving endeavors, Tony Stewart is heavily entrenched in the sport of
auto racing and has been for many years. Once Stewart hangs it up
from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing at the end of the season, he
plans to continue to play a big role in the day-to-day operations of
Stewart-Haas Racing where he’s been a co-owner since 2009.
Stewart also owns multiple sprint car teams, along with Eldora
Speedway, a wildly popular half-mile clay oval in Rossburg, Ohio,
that hosts an annual NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and
several of the nation’s premier late model and sprint car events.
Most recently, Stewart became the owner of the Arctic Cat All Star
Circuit of Champions sprint car series – one of the oldest traveling sprint
car organizations and a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing.
