Sprint Cup driver and Championship contender available to media in advance of racing in NASCAR’s Championship-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 20
WHAT: Fan/media opportunity with two-time Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart. Stewart has been crowned NASCAR Champion twice at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The two-time Sprint Cup Series champion earned his first crown in 2002 by beating veteran racer Mark Martin by 38 points and a second in 2005 when he bested Greg Biffle by 35 points.
Stewart has 12 Homestead-Miami Sprint Cup starts with three Top 5 and six Top 10 finishes going along with two victories. His average finish is 12.4. The driver of the No. 14 car has recorded three Top 5 and 11 Top 10 finishes this season. After his seventh-place finish Saturday at Richmond, Stewart comes into the 2011 Chase For The Sprint Cup Championship looking to become the first owner/driver to win NASCAR’s biggest prize since Alan Kulwicki in 1992.
This is a chance for our local media to meet with one of NASCAR’s best drivers to discuss the Chase, preview Ford Championship Weekend Nov. 18-20, and possibly test your skills against one of the best race drivers in the world. We have 10 slots available for media to race against Tony if he so chooses.
