Tony Stewart

Born Anthony Wayne Stewart on May 20, 1971, Tony has been racing almost all of his life. When he was growing up, he raced go-karts, and in 1987 Tony won the world karting championship. After that, Stewart started racing three-quarter midgets, and then started racing in the USAC, and was rookie of the year in 1991. In that racing series, Tony's breakout year came in 1995, when he won the USAC's version of the triple crown when he won the National Midget, Sprint and Silver Crown titles. After that success, in 1996, Tony became the Indy Racing League (IRL) Rookie of the year and in 1997 he became the Racing League's Circuit Champion. After spending a couple of years in the IRL, Tony moved into the NASCAR Winston Cup (later Nextel Cup) andBusch Series, where he raced for Joe Gibbs and became Rookie of the Year. Tony's success continued in the Nextel Cup, when he won 6 races in 2000, 3 races in 2001 and 2002, 2 wins in 2003 and 2004, and 5 wins in 2005, 2 career win in the Busch and Craftsman Truck Series. He is the defending NASCAR Nextel Cup champion, an award that he won once before in 2003. With the 2006 race season, Tony looks to be as successful as he has in the previous season and defend his championship as best as he can.
