Tony Stewart 22nd in Homestead Finale

The curtain came down to loud applause early Sunday evening at Homestead-Miami Speedway when Tony Stewart walked off the NASCAR stage for the final time as a Sprint Cup Series driver, ending a career that included three championships and 49 victories.

Stewart drove his No. 14 Always a Racer/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) to a 22nd-place finish in his 618th and final race on the 1.5-mile south Florida high banks Sunday in the sport’s 2016 season finale. 

The Final Race

KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Nov. 15, 2016) –After three NASCAR Sprint Cup titles, 49 victories and 618 starts, Tony Stewart will climb in his No. 14 Always a Racer/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for the final time in his 18-year career Sunday afternoon at Homestead-Miami Speedway and conclude what is destined to be a first-ballot Hall of Fame career. 

But save the tears, race fans. He isn’t done driving and he isn’t going away.

“You’re going to see me driving a lot next year, but most of it will be on dirt,” Stewart said. “I kind of look at this as halftime of my career and I’ll still be around the NASCAR garage. I’ll just have more time. If I see Richard Petty or anyone else in the garage, I can go over and talk to him now and not have to worry about getting to the car or trying to figure out how to make my car go faster. I can focus now on what I want to do and my job at SHR (Stewart-Haas Racing.)”

Tony Stewart 15th at Phoenix

Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), finished 15th Sunday in his 28th and final NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway.

“I’ll be honest with you, I’m really going to miss this place,” Stewart said about the Arizona mile oval where he raced in open wheel, IndyCar and NASCAR races during his soon-to-be Hall of Fame career.

Stewart started 25th on Sunday, and it didn’t take long for the excitement to begin: Kyle Larson spun in turn three on the opening lap, and as the 40-car field attempted to avoid the sliding Larson, Stewart made contact with another car. The damage forced the No. 14 to pit lane, where the crew made minor repairs and returned him to the race in 39th place.

Tony Stewart 31st at Texas

Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shop/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), finished 31st Sunday in his 28th and final NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

It was a long AAA Texas 500 for the three-time champion, who joined 39 other drivers plus crews and race fans waiting out the six-hour rain delay that turned the afternoon event into a night race. Stewart, like most of the drivers, struggled with the handling of his racecar on the Texas high banks made even slipperier by the weather.

He’s Finally Made It Big-Time in Texas!

KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Nov. 1, 2016) – He’s won three championships and 49 races in 18 years of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition. He’s also earned countless victories and titles on short tracks across America in nearly every form of racing imaginable. But few things have touched Tony Stewart like the honor he’s to receive this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, when the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) driver makes his 28th and final appearance on the 1.5-mile oval.

Stewart will have his own bobblehead doll.

Tony Stewart 26th at Martinsville

No. 14 Haas Automation Chevrolet driver Tony Stewart finished 26th Sunday in his 34th and final NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in the Goody’s Fast Relief 500. It was a long day for the three-time champion, who struggled with his car’s handling in the tight corners of the .526-mile, paperclip-shaped track.

“We just couldn’t get our car to turn today,” said Stewart, who missed the April race in Martinsville as he recovered from injuries suffered in an offseason accident.
