KANNAPOLIS, N.C., (July 23, 2014) – Tony Stewart knows what it means to be a big deal. Growing up in Indiana, he’s been surrounded by personalities who fit the bill, from fellow Hoosiers Larry Bird and John Mellencamp to the state-adopted personalities of Peyton Manning and Bobby Knight.
All are larger than life. All are kind of a big deal. It’s a fairly sacred fraternity – one that Stewart always admired but never imagined he would become a card-carrying member.
