He’s the All-American dream…and he’s the same guy who used to drive a wrecker for a living. He calls it like he sees it. Ya don’t hafta agree with the man on every word or deed to admire his authenticity.

But Stewart still remembers the challenges and obstacles the led him to the yard of bricks. “When you grow up 45 miles from here, (there was) a period of my life when I was driving a wrecker for a living, I was driving down 16th and Georgetown Road thinking, ‘Man, what would it be like to be 150 yards inside that fence running 200 miles an hour?'” Stewart reflected. “‘I got to do that.’ (Then) I got to come here in a stock car then win it for the first time. That was such a weight off our shoulders.
