Anthony Wayne "Tony" Stewart is an American stock car racer, businessman, and NASCAR team owner. He is a three-time Sprint Cup champion. Throughout his racing career, Stewart has also won racing titles in Indy, midget, sprint and USAC Silver Crown cars.
As of 2014 Stewart owns and drives the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for his own team, Stewart-Haas Racing under crew chief Chad Johnston. From 1999 until 2008, he drove the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing car, under crew chief Greg Zipadelli, with The Home Depot as the primary sponsor. His ten-year tenure with the same team, sponsor, and crew chief is a NASCAR record. Stewart is also the only driver to win both the Winston Cup under the old points system and the Nextel Cup under the chase playoff format, winning those championships in 2002 and 2005 respectively. In 2011, Stewart became the first owner-driver since Alan Kulwicki to win the Cup Series championship, which ended Jimmie Johnson's streak of consecutive championships at five.
