Team One Cure

Every once in a great while, a project comes along that cannot be ignored. Tony, the Board & the staff of our foundation had the chance to meet the scientists and veterinarians from the Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center. The center houses the world’s largest group of scientists studying and treating naturally occurring cancer in pets. And, the Center has trained more surgical, medical and radiation oncologists than any other veterinary institution.

We were simply “wowed”, for lack of a better word, with their innovative approach to discovering treatments for cancer in pets that translate directly to cancer treatments for people. The overall concept is “Comparative Oncology” which has gained traction in the past decade and is currently offering amazing treatments for people and pets alike. There are several leading institutions throughout the U.S. working alongside CSU Flint Animal Cancer Center. And, it fits perfectly with the mission of Tony’s foundation!

Tony and his foundation came away wanting to help spread the word about the amazing work being done to battle cancer – a disease that impacts virtually everyone. Borrowing the Flint Animal Cancer Center’s own branding of “One Cure”, our foundation has established Team One Cure as a multi-faceted program with two primary goals: (1) Raise awareness of the availability and potential of comparative oncology; and (2) raise funds to find cures for cancer in both people and pets.

Team One Cure – Full Speed Ahead

Cancer directly or indirectly impacts everyone. We each have a family member, a friend, a colleague, a neighbor, a pet or someone special in our lives who has been diagnosed with cancer. And, whether in remission, having beaten the disease, currently undergoing treatment or having lost the battle, we all seek a way to honor or memorialize these brave people and pets.

Throughout 2017, Team One Cure will offer a variety of ways to engage people everywhere wanting to stand up against cancer. During March, the “Faces of Team One Cure” campaign will launch providing an innovative way to honor people and pets. Fast forward to the Month of May at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway as “racing for a cure” takes on an entirely new meaning. Team One Cure will be emblazoned on the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM) No. 77 entry with veteran racer, JAY HOWARD, piloting the IndyCar.

Tony Stewart is, of course, about racing in all its forms. So, it’s only reasonable to take Team One Cure into the NASCAR arena. This summer, Team One Cure will be on the hood of Danica Patrick’s No. 10 Ford Fusion. Danica, like Tony and Jay, is a big softie for animals and so helping promote “one cure” through comparative oncology benefitting people and pets was a natural choice.

Additional on-track adventure arrives late summer with a single-day, multiple location karting competition. With 48 in-door karting tracks across the United States, everyone will have a chance to combine the need-for-speed with raising funds for cancer research and programs.

Plans are in the works to involved Eldora Speedway and Tony Stewart Racing so check our social media channels to catch the latest updates.

Slideways Karting Spectacular

The fifth annual WELD Racing Go Kart Spectacular, benefitting Tony’s foundation was held at Slideways Karting Center in Knoxville, Iowa, on Wednesday, August 9. Title sponsor WELD Racing celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and unveiled their 50th anniversary kart driven by both Shea Holbrook and Chris Davis in karting event.

Kyle Larson – currently 3rd in points with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series – joined Tony (Stewart) as returning drivers in the competition. Two-time Xfinity Series Champion Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. was welcomed as a newcomer to the Karting Spectacular. Representing WELD Racing will be “KamiKaze” Chris Day from the television show “Street Outlaws” and Pirelli World Challenge driver Shea Holbrook. These five “personalities” competed against 50 sprint car fans in a fun and often raucous race. Larson’s liberal use of baby powder on the hard-surface track made for interesting slides…

Each registered competitor received a group photo, an event t-shirt and goodie bag containing a Tony Stewart RACR14 license plate, WELD Racing merchandise and Tony Stewart No. 14 sprint car merchandise. TSF gives a very special “thank you” to Roush Yates Engines for donating pistons engraved with the event logo and date. These are definitely going to be displayed in a place of prominence by our competitors! And, bragging rights for having competed against some pretty talented drivers in the racing circuit!

The event was open to the general public for a $5.00 admission (donation) per person at the gate. All proceeds including the race entries, the sponsorships and gate admission totaled more than $32,500 benefitting Team One Cure – a program of the Tony Stewart Foundation.

TSF would be remiss if we didn’t extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to Slideways Karting for hosting everyone, to WELD Racing for generously being the Title Sponsor and to our volunteers who made the event come together in the best way possible!

Flip It For Good – Knoxville

Tony Stewart brought his Flip It For Good event to the fans during the 57th Annual 5-Hour Energy Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores. First introduced July 2016 at Stewart’s Eldora Speedway, the Flip It For Good competition is a large game of the perennial favorite – heads or tails?

Tony was on stage with his silver dollar to “flip it for good” with about 200 race fans of all ages on Friday, August 11. Tension was high as there were 3 participants on what ended up being the last flip of the coin. The last person standing was “Kim” from Fresno, California who had chosen “heads” for the victory. Kim received a Team One Cure canvas bag filled with goodies including a die cast autographed by Tony along with a pair of “14” canvas chairs and a pair of “14” stadium blankets.

TSF extends a very special THANK YOU to everyone who contributed $10.00 to play! Each donation included a Flip It For Good event bandana.

While we didn’t break the record established in July 2016 at Eldora Speedway (851 players), there’s always next year!

Nicole GralskiThis is why I love you, Smoke!! Thank you so much for all the support your foundation provides, but especially for what you do for CCA. My nephew has a rare craniofacial syndrome called Apert syndrome, so the Choose Kind movement is especially close to my heart! I can't wait to see Wonder tonight (though I'm a little nervous). My family (including my nephew) lives near Kannapolis and we've been to Stewart-Haas a few times and we always cross our fingers that we'll bump into you so we can thank you in person! Miss you on the track! (I'm keeping an eye out for you at Williams Grove, too, which is near MY house!) ❤❤❤
