Some Down Under Fun For Stewart

Just when you think that maybe Tony Stewart is ready to rest and relax alittle. Maybe kick up his feet and take a nap.

The man makes plans to head Down Under to race. Tony will be heading to Australia to compete on the Tyrepower Parramatta City Raceway for the first time on December 26 for the Valvoline Australian Sprintcar Grand Prix. Donny Schatz will be joining Stewart for these events.

Stewart will also compete on December 29 in the Hogs Breath Sprintcar International.

Then on January 2-3, 2010 Stewart and Schatz will be racing against All Star Series champ Tim Shaffer, fellow American Jason Johnson, Australia's best racers includings Brooke Tatnell, Max Dumesny, Robbie Farr, Ryan Farrell and Kerry Madsen in the Scott Darley race, for the $50,000 prize money.

The last time Stewart was in Australia was during the formative years of his career when he competed at the Parramatta venue during a limited campaign.


  1. if he gets given an Eels (or worse, a Blues) jersey, I am so going to be dissing Tony for the rest for his career, lol

  2. Okay, I give up who/what are the Eels and Blues?

    Well let's hope that he doesn't get either. So you don't diss him for the rest of his career. Because if he goes the way of Mark Martin, that could be along time. hahaha

  3. Figures Tony will head down under for some more racing. Lets hope he does well.

  4. the Parramatta Eels are a rugby league team whereas I am a Brisbane Broncos fan. The State of Origin series is the next level up from that and pits the Blues (New South Wales) against the Maroons (Queensland...Brisbane tend to supply about 50% of the team) in a state vs state battle. Basically it's an all out brawl where, after a while, a league game breaks out ;)

    even living some 10 000 miles away, old habits die hard, LOL!

  5. photogr, I figured he would do some racing somewhere. Like Fort Waye for the Fort Wayne Rumble or the Chili Bowl in Tulsa. Because that is his normal. Guess even Smoke has to break out of the norm from time to time. But when he does, he really goes way down under.

  6. Tez thanks for explaining that. Can't say that I have any more idea about them now than I did before. I have never even seen a game of rugby.
