As if the World of Outlaws wasn’t enough to blow the roof off our town, NASCAR Superstar, Tony Stewart, has thrown his helmet into the mix, which will most likely push this Event over the top. On Friday, March 22, the World of Outlaws will initiate the new Stockton 99 Dirt Track at the Fairgrounds with the full participation of Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Tony Stewart, at the helm of his high-powered 410 Winged Sprint Car. Of course, this is nothing new for Stewart since he participates throughout the year at venues he can incorporate into his busy NASCAR schedule, which, by the way, for this race, includes a very busy week in Fontana.
However, what will be new is the fact he has never raced his sprint in California. Stewart said of this point, “Undoubtedly, It’ll be a busy Friday in California. We’ll be qualifying our Cup car before heading up to Stockton to mix it up with the Outlaws. This will be my first time racing my winged sprint car in the state of California. I’m passionate about grassroots racing. It’s in my blood. I grew up racing midgets and sprint cars in the USAC Series. There’s no place I’d rather be than at a race track on a Friday night.”
Racing with the Outlaws is certainly no easy task and no one knows this better than Stewart.“When you race with the Outlaws, you know you have to be on top of your game as the Outlaws have some of the best 410 sprint drivers in the world. If you can stay ahead of Kinser, Swindell, Schatz, those guys, you know you’ve had an impressive night,” concluded Stewart.
The Noceti Group Inc. of Stockton is very excited about this news and is looking forward to a sell-out crowd to usher in the 2013 Season. Stewart, himself, is hoping for the same, “I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing a packed house of passionate northern California dirt fans at Stockton later this month.” This is one race you won’t want to miss.
