Tony Stewart: 2010 NASCAR Preview

2010 NASCAR Preview: Tony Stewart

No one really knew what to expect from Tony Stewart in 2009: he took partial ownership of the former Haas CNC Racing in July 2008, redubbed it Stewart-Haas Racing, and left the security of Joe Gibbs Racing to be his own man.  Along the way, he picked up fellow open-wheel graduate Ryan Newman for a pretty significant one-two punch – not bad for the reincarnation of a team that had one top-five finish in almost 300 prior starts.  Stewart added support from Hendrick Motorsports and sponsorship from the likes of Office Depot, Old Spice, Burger King, and the US Army for the two teams, and hoped for the best.

No one expected the team to pay dividends as quickly as it did: in mid-May, at the Sprint All-Star Challenge at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina, Stewart took the checkered flag and a $1 million payout for his new team’s first victory, albeit a non-points race.  He would go on to win four points races and have 23 top-ten finishes with only one DNF (did-not-finish).  He became the first owner-driver to lead the points standings since the late Alan Kulwicki in 1992, and ended up sixth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

No one has any doubts anymore: ….

No one expects Stewart to slow down: ….
