Tony Stewart is a 45-year old stock race driver, three-time Sprint Cup champion, has 49 wins, 308 top-10s, and 15 poles. One of the best pure racers of NASCAR Sprint has made his final race in a pure and clean race. He's a little bit emotional for he was known as "Smoke" but for all the strong praise, Stewart make things clear that he is just a simple race car driver at heart to the end.
According to NASCAR, it has been seventeen years, nine months and six days when Stewart made a premier series debut, an Indiana-born and train to be a racer made a final start as a full-time NASCAR competitor. He finishes 22nd for the season-ending of Ford EcoBoost 400 at Miami Speedway.
He still remains a co-owner of SHR, the four team NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Organization. Stuart is still on his race but not full time and not even in NASCAR. He was grateful and flattered that the crewmen line pit road and start waving him off as he starts his 618th and final start.
Stewart said that it is still hard to digest everything as the moments where he climbs out of his car. He added that the whole day was amazing, and he couldn't ask for it to be a better day. The best part was probably the peers and fellow drivers and the crew chiefs and members, ESPN reported.
Maybe Stewart will never race again in Sprint Cup but he'll be back in the seat of race car it may not be today but soon. His first business is his annual off-road trip, and likely finds himself in the sprint car in a short track soon. Tony Stewart lapped at the first 75 laps and two laps down at one point.
He wouldn't be able to stay out on the caution in order to get back on the lead lap. He was a little bit bothered on how he can score after a big wreck in 10 laps remaining. As Stewart get over, he finishes his final season on 15th in the standing.
Stewart said that he was proud. It is always been an awesome 21 years of racing in NASCAR in the Xfinity Series and Cup Series. After the race Stewart felt honored in another way that he races the event where Jimmie Johnson won a record-tying the seventh champion.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
