Grant Partner of the Week

Wholey Smoke! Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart is best known as a highly successful competitor on the race track. His racing career – having started at the tender age of 7 – would need multiple library shelves to hold the trivia, stories & trophies. The easiest way to help you understand his depth as a racer is to simply have you read his bio summary.

A more quiet side of Tony – but nonetheless impactful – is persona as a philanthropist. He began his foundation in August 2003 for the single purpose of helping organizations which serve the children, animals and drivers he cares about. Through December 2015, more than $6.5 million in monetary grants have been given to amazing charities operating in 41 of the 50 United States. What makes an organization stand out to receive a Tony Stewart Foundation Grant? Heart. Compassion. Healing. Joy. Laughter. Teamwork. As we work toward selecting the 2016 recipients, I hope you’ll take time to be inspired by reading about our 2015 TSF “Grant Accelerator” Partners, our 2015 TSF “Tony’s Crew” Partners and our 2015 Board Grant Partners.

Smoke will hang up his driving gloves in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series following the November 20, 2016 Ford EcoBoost 400 Championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. But, our favorite racer will continue his legacy of philanthropy through his foundation which reflects his love for children and animals, as well as for his racing family and community.

I have been a fan of Tony for 8 years. I have always appreciated his complete honesty; he tells you what he thinks. He will admit when he is wrong and not blame other drivers unless it IS their fault. He can drive anything with wheels and you can see the joy he gets from racing. He is quick to share that joy with those around him, too.

NASCAR is my first love, but I also follow NHRA Drag Racing. I have been fortunate to meet John Force, my favorite drag racer. I grew up around cars, working on cars, (yes, I was an auto mechanic for 11 years!), and being part of a pit crew on a drag car in Nashville. I always dreamed of being the first female mechanic in NASCAR, but never could get my foot in the door. I guess I was a little ahead of my time. I started attending the Saturday night races at the Nashville Fairgrounds raceway, usually being the first in line at the ticket booth! I enjoyed watching Bill Elliott, Daryl Waltrip, Sterling Marlin, and Bobby Hamilton race frequently at Nashville.
