BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 26, 2021) – Despite poor weather conditions disrupting plans to contend for two victories instead of one, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer, Tony Stewart, made the most of his weekend at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama, and earned a top-five outcome during USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour competition, ultimately turning a third row starting position into a fourth-place finish.
Smoke, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, kicked-off his evening at Talladega with a heat race victory, setting the tone for his soon-to-be third top-five finish of the 2021 season.
“We enjoy racing at Talladega. It’s always good to get back there,” Tony Stewart said. “Our team is in a good place right now. Things are clicking and we’re building more and more confidence with every start. I’m excited to see where things go over the next few weeks.”
With confidence and momentum a continuing benefactor, Smoke will enter the month of May with not only a recent USCS top-five to his credit, but also two victories, most recently claiming a $12,000 payday during a thriller at Virginia Motor Speedway with the All Star Circuit of Champions. Accomplished in dramatic fashion, the five-figure score was acquired with a last lap, last corner pass over Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck. Stewart started eighth on the A-Main grid and led only the last 100 yards of the 30-lap blockbuster.
