Little known (& probably useless) fact

Tony Stewart is, and will always be, the only NASCAR driver who has won a Winston Cup, a Nextel Cup, and a Sprint Cup.

Did a little research (very little) and found that there were only four Nextel Cups awarded. Of the four, there were only three winners: Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, and Jimmie Johnson (twice). Of those three, Tony is the only one who won a Winston Cup. Since Tony won his own Sprint Cup, he has the distinction of all three awards.

Just a funny little fact I have wondered about for a while. Anyone else have a fun fact?

Re: Little known (& probably useless) fact

Yeah......Tony is the ONLY one to complete the INDY 500 and the COKE 6OO. It was back in 2001. He finished TOP 10 in both.

Re: Little known (& probably useless) fact

Anyone who likes to race them RC cars might be interested
Here's one of Tony's other companies: http://www.customworksrc.com/index2.php

In July of 2003 Brian and Jerry's long time friend Tony Stewart purchased the company and moved it to its current location in Denver, NC.

Fun Fact: Only other NASCAR driver to own a monkey other than Tim Flock was Tony Stewart.

Re: Little known (& probably useless) fact

I like the monkey fact.

I had thought that if I ever need a service animal, I would like to have a monkey. That was before I read Tony's story about why he had to place Mojo in a zoo. For those who don't know, when Mojo became a monkey teenager, he became very violent. Tony didn't want to part with him, but Mojo was too dangerous to have outside a monkey habitat. So I decided I would get a dog that I could have around for a long time.

Tony being Tony, he checks up on Mojo and sees him when possible. At last report, Mojo was doing well.

Re: Little known (& probably useless) fact

If I remember correctly... the problem was "teen-age hormones" ...and it could have easily been fixed with a "snip - snip" and it would domesticate the monkey more but Tony said "No Way!" to that and gave him to the zoo, to live a normal life... with all his parts. ;-)

Tony is also the first...and last owner/driver to win a NASCAR top series championship since 1992 when Alan Kulwicki took the crown.
