#WholeySmoke! Everyone knows Tony Stewart is a true racer with a winning history whatever he drives. Since age 7, he has driven competitively…and raked up quite a lot of trophies, achievements and accolades along the way.
At Las Vegas & Phoenix these last couple of weeks, you have seen Tony the Owner – arguing with officials, offering expertise from the pit box and sharing pride in both SHR victory and teams finishing strong.
So who, exactly, is Tony Stewart the philanthropist? And, why should you care about his foundation?
The Tony Stewart Foundation “Accelerates Change” for outstanding charities serving children, animals and injured drivers. The stories you’ll hear confirm what Tony himself would tell you – that $1.00 is more than 100 pennies as it relates to the impact of a TSF Grant.
One story of Accelerating Change begins in Tony’s home state of Indiana but it expands across the Atlantic. It’s a tale about a grant from one racer to benefit another.
Those of you who have been “around awhile” will remember Tony’s commercial with the cheetah arriving at the Indianapolis Zoo. Far more than a publicity stunt, the partnership was created to draw attention toward and action for a highly endangered animal.
