The driver, who is set to retire from NASCAR at the end of the upcoming season, has plans to keep on racing, mostly in dirt-track events. "I plan on running a lot of dirt races after the end of the season when I retire from the Cup stuff, so I would say this is on the radar," Stewart said on Monday at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
