Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Tony Stewart page on 28 March 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Anthony Wayne "Tony" Stewart is an American professional stock car racing driver and NASCAR team owner. He is a three-time Sprint Cup Series champion as a driver. Throughout his racing career, Stewart has won racing titles in Indy, midget, sprint, and USAC Silver Crown cars. He is the only driver in history to win a championship in both IndyCar and NASCAR.

Stewart owns and drives the No. 14 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for his own team, Stewart-Haas Racing, under crew chief Mike Bugarewicz. From 1999 to 2008, he drove the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing car, under crew chief Greg Zipadelli with The Home Depot as the primary sponsor. While driving for car owner Joe Gibbs, Stewart won two Cup Series championships in 2002 and 2005. 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. Stewart is the only driver to win the Cup Series championship under the old points system and the chase playoff format, and is the only driver to win the title under three different sponsorships (Winston in 2002, Nextel in 2005, and Sprint in 2011). He is also the first driver in the Cup Series to win the championship by virtue of a tie breaker (number of wins during the season is the first level tie breaker; Stewart had five while eventual runner-up Carl Edwards had one).

Stewart also has a Sprint Cup Championship as an owner, as the Stewart-Haas owned No. 4 car driven by Kevin Harvick won the Cup in 2014. This gives Stewart four Sprint Cup Championships total for his career (two as a driver, one as an owner/driver, and one as an owner).
