BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 21, 2019) – For the tenth time in 2019, ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart earned his way to sprint car victory lane, this time during United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour competition at Chatham Speedway in Chatham, Louisiana.
Certainly no stranger to USCS competition, nor victory lane, Smoke’s triumph on Friday, October 18, was the product of row two, quickly racing his way to the front before being forced to hold back a hard-charging Mark Smith, who started ninth. The USCS victory was Stewart’s fifth of the 2019 season, his first since May 27 during a visit to Lexington, Tennessee.
“When you have a guy like Mark Smith behind you, you can’t make any mistakes. He’s a great racer, so anytime you can keep a guy like him behind you says a lot,” Tony Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car. “We enjoy racing with the USCS. It’s a fun Series. Hopefully we have plenty of opportunities to join them in the future.”
Although unable to repeat victory on Saturday during the USCS/Chatham Speedway finale, Smoke did the next best thing and finished second, ultimately ending his evening in the exact position that he started. Mark Smith, who started fourth, was the victor.
His schedule for the coming weekend remains uncertain, but Tony Stewart plans to return to sprint car competition as early as Thursday and Friday, October 31 & November 1, during the Texas Sprint Car Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway dirt track. The ASCS sanctioned program will feature the best 360 sprint car racers in the country including each and every ASCS national full-timer.
