Tony Stewart, has joined the list of featured speakers during the 4th annual Race Industry Week, Nov. 27-Dec. 1.
As tenacious as Stewart is in the cockpit of a racecar, he’s proven equally adept at providing cars and equipment for racing’s elite.
The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion can also list 32 owners’ titles to his resume, from NASCAR to NHRA to USAC to the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series. Drag racing, however, is a new endeavor, yet Stewart’s drive to succeed remains the same.
His team, Tony Stewart Racing, fields a powerhouse lineup in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series with Leah Pruett in Top Fuel and Matt Hagan in Funny Car. These two drivers wrangle their 11,000-horsepower machines to speeds in excess of 330 mph down a 1,000-footlong straightaway. It’s a visceral explosion of sound and fury that is unlike any other motorsports property in the world. Having conquered oval tracks, both paved and covered in dirt, Stewart has set his sights on straight-line racing.
