Tony Stewart Announces Retirement

>FORT WORTH, Texas (September 30, 2015) – The following is a statement from Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage regarding Wednesday’s announcement by three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart that he plans to retire from competition at the conclusion of the 2016 season. Stewart plans to remain active in NASCAR as a co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing.

“I’m not surprised that Tony will retire from NASCAR Sprint Cup competition after the 2016 season because it is something he’s talked about doing in our conversations over the last six or eight years. NASCAR Sprint Cup racing will miss him behind the wheel. I think he always viewed Cup racing as a job that helped him fulfill his passion for racing on dirt tracks, running world-famous Eldora Speedway or owning the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series. I don’t know anybody that loves racing more. He’s a sure-fire, first ballot shoo-in for the NASCAR Hall of Fame.”
