Tony Stewart

Short bio: 

Anthony Wayne "Tony" Stewart was born May 20, 1971 in Columbus, IN. He grew up racing go karts and won a World Karting Association championship in 1987. He moved up to the United Midget Racing Association (UMRA) where he raced TQ (three quarter) midgets until 1991, when he again moved up this time to the United States Auto Club (USAC) series with help from one of his karting sponsors and friend Mark Dismore. Stewart was the USAC Rookie of the Year in 1991, USAC National Midget Series Champion in 1994 and 1995 and USAC Silver Crown Series champion in 1995.

In 1996, Stewart made his NASCAR Busch Series debut, driving for car owner Harry Rainer. Since his debut, Stewart has become three-time Sprint Cup champion. As of 2014 Stewart owns and drives the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS, Stewart-Haas Racing under crew chief Chad Johnston. From 1999 until 2008, he drove the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing car. His ten-year tenure with the same team, sponsor, and crew chief is a NASCAR record. Stewart is also the only driver to win both the Winston Cup under the old points system and the Nextel Cup under the chase playoff format, winning those championships in 2002 and 2005.

In 2011, Stewart became the first owner-driver since Alan Kulwicki to win the Cup Series championship, which ended Jimmie Johnson's streak of 5 consecutive championships. He is the only driver to win the NASCAR championship under three different sponsorship titles (Winston in 2002, Nextel in 2005, and Sprint in 2011) as well as being the only driver in history to win a championship in both IndyCar and NASCAR. He is also the first driver in Cup to win the championship by a tie breaker.

Hello I'm MacKenzie Sewell, I'm seventeen, and I'm a huge Tony Stewart fan. I've grown up cheering for him since I was two. I would love to invite him to my graduation party on May 14th. I graduate from Oskaloosa High School on May 15. I know he's very busy and probably not going to see this but I thought I should give it a try. #1 FAN contact me for more information.

This past Sunday may 15,2016, my sister was out in an ATV with some friends and had almost the same kind of fracture you did. She had emergency surgery and has a rod and some pins in her spine. Her name is Lori, she's 42 and a single mom and it would mean a lot to her if she could get some words of encouragement from you. She loves NASCAR!

My dad has been coming to eldora speedway for 36 yrs and this is the worst track we've ever seen. 0 passing in heats/ c main / b main, for as good as technology is the hasn't been a track record broken in years!!! With all the rain and track equipment this is very poor excuse for the best "dirt track " ever! I always looked to this track as the BEST ever however the last few years have been a huge let down!!! Very disappointing
