BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 4, 2018) – In one of the most exciting sprint car finishes of the 2018 season, Tony Stewart was less than a second from scoring his third victory of the year on Saturday night when eight-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion, Bill Balog, stole the show, passing Stewart in the final two corners before beating the Columbus, Ind., native in a drag race to the final checkers by a margin of victory equaling .004 seconds.

Although a frustrating end to his visit to the Plymouth Dirt Track in southern Wisconsin, overall, the evening was successful for the driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car, earning a victory during his respective heat race before crossing under the main event checkers second in the running order. Tony Stewart’s runner-up finish bumped his season top-five total to 21.

“That was a lot of fun. Obviously, that wasn’t how we wanted that one to end, but it was still an exciting finish. I’m sure the fans enjoyed every minute of that one,” Tony Stewart said, who owns victories during 360c.i. competition, as well as 410c.i. competition, in 2018. “Bill Balog drove a great race. He deserved that one. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t allow us to try again on Sunday at 141 Speedway. Hopefully I have an opportunity to return to that area soon.”

Tony Stewart’s upcoming plans remain uncertain. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via Tony Stewart Racing’s social media pages.
