Tony Stewart has more than made his mark

Now auto racing’s man for all reasons

LOUDON, N.H. — Tony Stewart has always chafed at the description of his vast racing conglomeration as being an “empire.’’

Something about that never suited Stewart, 42, of Columbus, Ind., a blue-collar racer who traced his open-wheel roots to the dirt tracks of the Midwest. That’s where he became a popular USAC Triple Crown champion in 1995 before going on to greater glory as an Indy car champion in 1997, and later a three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion driver turned team owner, car owner, and track promoter.
