A Virtual Tony Stewart Grab Bag

Posted by Amy in General

So today I have for you- a virtual Tony Stewart grab bag of news. I was going to call this entry a Tony Stewart Cornucopia but that invokes an image of fall.  I tend to post all news on stewarthaasfan.com and don’t think to post it here or talk about it here- so here are some Tony Stewart notes for you.  Anyways…here we go:

Here are some pictures that Valli from The Fast and The Fabulous found and shared with me of Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick playing Rockband with some young fans at Bristol last weekend. Looks like it was a blast and I bet it was fun just to be in the room watching (It was fun last year at the fall Fontana race when Jeff Gordon did this- that I saw live).

Secondly is this quote from the latest team release regarding Martinsville: “We’re essentially a start-up race team, so to start the season out of the top-35 has been unfamiliar territory for me and a lot of the people on our team. But at Martinsville, we’re going to be parked wherever we’re at in points, and that’s something that’s going to be a proud moment – knowing that we’re going to be mixed in with some of the biggest teams in NASCAR. From day one, I’ve been proud of everything this team has been able to do. The proof of that is when you get going at the racetrack and park your equipment next to everybody else’s.” For those not in the know- from Martinsville (this weekend) on – it’s all about where you are in the drivers points- and this matters for everything from where your hauler is parked in the lot, to what happens in case of a rained out qualifying session, to whether or not you have a guarenteed spot in the field or are a go-or-go-homer.  For the first part of this season (the first five races) Tony was technically a go-or-go-home driver- however- with his most recent past champion provisional he was pretty much guarenteed a spot in the field. Not that he needed it- since he qualified well each weekend.  Tony is excited that his hauler will be parked in the area for those who are in the top 35 in owner points (and apparently at Martinsville this is divided by the placement of the hotdog stand).

Next up is a new series to air on NASCAR.COM and YAHOO.com starting on April 1st, 2009. It will be called Off The Track with Tony Stewart, where fans can get an up-close look at what goes on in Tony’s life beyond the track. From what I have seen in the following two previews it looks really cool and I can’t wait to watch:

And finally- The Office Depot Racing website has uploaded its first batch of fan photos submitted by fans. They can be seen here in the infield/fanzone section of the website. Three of these photos are mine.  Can you guess which three? If you can there is a shiny nickel in it for you (or maybe a mix cd or something).
