BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 5, 2019) – A last minute driver change in the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car placed Paul McMahan in the pilot seat, taking the controls for Tony Stewart during the annual Knoxville 360 Nationals.
Despite the last minute change and very little time to prepare, the team put together a sound performance at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, ending their two-day campaign with a 14th place finish during the $15,000-to-win weekend finale, earning their way into the big dance by finishing sixth during preliminary competition on Friday, August 2.
Impressive enough, Paul McMahan timed fourth quick overall during preliminary competition, eventually putting on a charge from sixth to finish second during his respective heat race which set the stage for the rest of his weekend results.
“I can’t thank him enough for helping us out last weekend,” Tony Stewart said of Paul McMahan, who is a resident of Nashville and a current All Star Circuit of Champions competitor. “It’s tough to throw a new driver in a car that quick and be successful, but we were able to pull that off. That just goes to show how talented these guys are.”
Upcoming plans for Tony Stewart and the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 entry are undetermined. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media for further updates.
