In 2000, Tony Stewart was still in the early stages of his legendary NASCAR® career when he returned to his open wheel roots and won two of USAC’s crown jewel events – the Copper World Classic at Phoenix and the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Irwindale. In both races, Stewart drove a white Midget that was accented with flames to Victory Lane.
That famed livery that Stewart won those races with in 2000 will return to the track in the form of Chase Briscoe’s No. 14 Mahindra Tractors Ford Mustang at Darlington Raceway. Briscoe’s ride will turn back the clock to the ride that his Stewart-Haas Racing team owner drove to open-wheeled success 23 years earlier.
