Tony Stewart Returns to Iowa to Race This Saturday

Exciting news shared Thursday morning from the Knoxville Raceway’s Facebook page announced that the legendary NASCAR three-time Sprint Cup Series champion, Tony Stewart, will be racing this Saturday night, July 8th, in the 360 class.  Stewart has become a household name for NASCAR fans since joining the circuit in 1999.  He only just now retired in November of last year, but not before winning championships in 2002, 2005, and 2011.  Of course, retirement will not slow this lifelong racer down, and this race is especially monumental.  The last time Stewart raced a sprint car in Iowa was back in 2013 at the Southern Iowa Speedway when a crash caused a broken leg and ended his season dramatically.
