NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart owns a World of Outlaws team whose drivers include Steve Kinser -- known as "The King of the Outlaws". Anthony Wayne "Tony" Stewart (born May 20, 1971), has won titles in Indy cars and stock cars as well as midget and sprint. Stewart currently owns and drives the No.14 Office Depot/Mobil 1/Burger King, Chevrolet Impala in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for his own team, Stewart-Haas Racing. Stewart is the only driver to win both the Winston Cup under the old points system and the Nextel Cup under the chase playoff format, winning those championships in 2002 and 2005 respectively. In 2011, Stewart became the first owner-driver since Alan Kulwicki to win the Cup Series championship, which ended Jimmie Johnson's streak of consecutive championships at five. Tony Stewart was born in Columbus, Indiana, on May 20, 1971, and grew up racing go karts. Stewart was the USAC Rookie of the Year in 1991 and was the National Midget series champion in 1994.
In 1995, Stewart became the first driver to win USAC's version of the Triple Crown (this consisted of winning all 3 USAC Championships, the Midget, Sprint Car, and Silver Crown racing championships) and when he was not racing IndyCars, he raced stock cars. Stewart earned the nickname of "Smoke", first for slipping the right rear tire during dirt races and then for blowing his engine often during his '97 championship run. The Tony Stewart car at the Woodland Auto Exhibit is a display car only. It meets all current NASCAR specifications and could be run throughout the end of this year. Even though it is the same as Stewart runs, it did not come from his fleet but rather from the Germain Racing Team. It was purchased in N. Carolina and was wrapped in Stewart's colors and logos using massive computerized decals/wraps no more hours and hours of painting to get that advertising and sponsorship commitment covered.
This car conforms to the 2012 Sprint Cup rules. It was actually raced by the Germain Racing Team as a Toyota. When we purchased it, we had the body change to conform to Chevy specifications and had it wrapped as "Smoke´s" OFFICE DEPOT race car. All else remains just as it came off the track.
