A New Race. A New Life.

In January 2017, Prison Greyhounds brought 11 retired racing greyhounds from Daytona Beach up to Indianapolis for adoption. The cost to safely transport these ex-racers was funded through a Tony Stewart Foundation Grant. Four of the greyhounds have been placed in Putnamville Correctional Facility, Greencastle, Indiana. Their inmate-handlers will spend 2 months teaching them basic house manners prior to adoption. Like any retired greyhound racer, they just need someone to transition them from a racing professional to a family pet.The other seven greyhounds went either directly to pre-approved adopters or have landed softly with a foster family. Of these eleven greyhounds, four retired with racing injuries known as “repaired fractures” meaning they were fully healed when we took them into our [...]

Clint Bowyer

New Team, New Manufacturer, Same Desire To Win Daytona 500 KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Feb.15, 2017) – Let us re-introduce you to Clint Bowyer. You might remember him. He finished second in the 2012 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship and third in the 2007 title chase. He has eight NASCAR Cup Series victories and won the 2008 NASCAR Xfinity Series title after leaving his hometown of Emporia, Kansas for racing glory in 2004. He’s NASCAR’s everyman, whose collar is as blue as his Kansas City Royals hat and his smile as wide as a wheat field. He’s been quiet the last two seasons, but that only proves how much of a team sport NASCAR is these days. Midway through [...]

CSU Veterinarians Help Bring Groundbreaking Cancer Drug to Market

Through its clinical trials for animal patients, Colorado State University helped prove the usefulness of the first drug approved by the FDA for treatment of canine lymphoma, a breakthrough in veterinary oncology that promises new hope for pet dogs with this common type of cancer. “Across the board, we saw some positive activity in up to 80 percent of all the lymphoma patients that were treated with this medication,” said Dr. Doug Thamm, a veterinarian and cancer researcher who led clinical trials at CSU’s Flint Animal Cancer Center. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that the lymphoma drug, Tanovea-CA1, is approved for use in canine patients and will be available to veterinarians nationwide this spring.

Tony is Comfortable in Retirement

TULSA, Okla. -- Tony Stewart opted for a vehicle that he could rev up to a whopping 2 mph during the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals race week. Rarely does Stewart have to go slow to earn a paycheck. But there he was working into the wee hours of the morning, plodding along tilling the surface to prepare the track throughout the week. He didn't race because he got the call from the race organizer Emmett Hahn that Hahn needed Stewart's track-prep acumen, a job Stewart has performed the past four years at the Tulsa River Spirit Expo Center. As he toiled away at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, well after all the races had ended Friday night, [...]

Dr. Joseph F. Kasper

  For the past decade or more I’ve been an avid following of Smoke. His style of driving, personality and especially his courage as a business owner - like myself -has strengthened my dedication as a fan. I don’t follow a lot of different sports – primarily NASCAR and a bit of the IndyCar Series. Unfortunately being in Utah there are few opportunities to actually attend a racing event without 6 or more hours of travel. I did certainly enjoy attending the June 2016 race at Sonoma that Tony won!! As Tony said jokingly when we met, “There are people that live in Utah?” It’s sure enjoyable to follow Tony – especially through his Twitter posts – but also through [...]
