“I’ve watched Austin for many years and at each stage of his racing career he’s been successful,” Stewart said. “He’s proven to be a very fast learner, and he’s able to adapt quickly. Being the youngest champion in the history of the Truck Series is proof of that. His background in dirt racing is an asset, and off the track we share many of the same interests, specifically, hunting and fishing. I know he’ll perform well at Michigan and I’m just as confident in his ability to properly represent Mobil 1 and Bass Pro Shops throughout the race weekend."
I say.......if it is alright with Tony, then it certainly alright with me! I met Austin about 4 yrs ago, very nice young man! After watching him at Eldora I think he can hold his own.....first time Austin drove Michigan he finished 11 in the # 33 at the beginning of the year.
