Tony Stewart pays Tribute to Childhood Hero in choosing new number

Filed under: NASCAR — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 7:06 am

Tony “Smoke” Stewart recently presented his new number 14 Chevrolet Impala that he will be piloting with sponsors Office Depot and Old Spice.  The number 20 and the bold orange that was his flagship for most of his career will no longer be associated with “Smoke” at the end of 2008.  Stewart chose the the number 14 to pay tribute and emulate childhood hero and 5-Time Indianapolis winner A. J. Foyt.

The second driver for the newly formed Stewart-Haas Motorsports organization has yet to be announced but rumor has it that it will be fellow Indiana native and 2008 Daytona 500 winner Ryan Newman.

Stay tuned for more as Silly Season progresses and details are announced.
