April 18th is the race at Texas Motor Speedway – it will be Tony Stewart’s 400th career start in the Sprint Cup series. There are a couple of Tony Stewart events to keep my ardent Smoke fans occupied during non-race time hours at Texas Motor Speedway!
First off is the Ride of A Lifetime NASCAR Foundation event. You can bid on a chance to ride with Tony Stewart during his parade lap after driver introductions (teammate Ryan Newman is also participating as well as a whole slew of other drivers). To bid on your chance you have to go to the live auction on April 17th. Visit Speedway Children’s Charities to find out how you can bid on a chance to ride with Tony (or Ryan).
Also there will be an autograph session with Tony Stewart at the Office Depot in Grapevine, Texas on April 14th. There will be 700 wristbands given out starting at 8:00 am on the day of the event in a first come first serve method. The event will begin at 4:00 pm and those with wristbands need to be in line no later than 5:00pm. The address of the Office Depot where the event will take place is: 1317 State Highway 114 West, Grapevine, Texas 76051. Autographs are limited to one per person with wristband. I think that since the autograph session is on the 14th of the month- it’s gonna be a good day.
Hope you all have a great time!
