The mission of the Tony Stewart Foundation is to provide grant funding to well-qualified organizations serving children who are critically ill or physically disabled; animals at-risk or endangered; and drivers injured in the sport of motor racing.
Charlotte, NC (May 18, 2016) – Hard-driving 3-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart is a self-professed “softie” for children – especially children facing serious illness. Tony knows first-hand that unexpected injury or illness can derail even the most steady individual. When families receive news that their child requires a lengthy hospital stay and aggressive treatment, their to-do list becomes unimaginably long.
Cindy has been a Tony Stewart fan for years – back to his IRL days. She shares,“I met his mom several years ago and that sealed the deal. I have proudly worn and collected Tony Stewart memorabilia ever since. My brother-in-law has even bid (and won) TS items during charity auctions so I am a very proud owner of a framed autographed and authenticated Tony Stewart leather jacket. I am truly blessed!”
In a decade not so long ago, Nelson Stewart shared his passion for racing with his young son. Fast forward to 2016 and Tony Stewart – well, “Smoke” is associated with almost every form of the sport of motor racing. Nelson celebrated his 78th birthday in April in the great state of Texas behind the wheel of his 44s Legends race car. Nelson’s friends tease that he’s the “Fire that started Smoke”…and that’s largely true.
