He is also in love — wait, who? Smoke? — and 5 months away from his fiftieth birthday finds himself happier in his private life than ever earlier than.
However whilst he is settled right into a blissful routine with drag racer Leah Pruett, a relationship that started early within the pandemic when Stewart’s hectic schedule was immediately cleaned, he cannot overlook the criticism being lobbed his method.

Corporations make robust enterprise choices and Larson, since signed by Hendrick Motorsports, nonetheless has to redeem himself to companies that pay the racing payments.
However the Truck Collection debacle is one Stewart cannot let go. He is heard too many individuals say it was NASCAR that left Eldora, the Ohio grime observe Stewart owns, after an eight-year partnership. It was Stewart’s group that obtained a mud observe positioned on the NASCAR nationwide schedule, invested in capital enhancements on the facility and constructed probably the most well-liked occasions on the Truck Collection schedule.
In an interview with The Related Press, Stewart stated his objective had all the time been to make use of the Truck Collection occasion as proof that Xfinity and Cup can race on grime and will race at Eldora. However two days earlier than NASCAR launched the Cup schedule in September, Stewart obtained a tip that Bristol Motor Speedway was going to remodel its facility into a mud observe for its first 2021 Cup race.
“I felt like I might been mule-kicked within the intestine,” Stewart advised the AP.
Incensed that not a single NASCAR govt had given him a heads-up, he instantly advised his workers to tear up the sanctioning settlement he’d but to signal for the 2021 Truck Collection race.
A brief dialogue with NASCAR lastly started, and Stewart took the weekend to relax. His workers seemed on the numbers and, regardless that the vans have been worthwhile for the observe, the race ranked solely fourth on Eldora’s occasions — whereas requiring double the hassle and sweat fairness.
When he reconvened with NASCAR after a number of days to assume, Stewart stated he was direct.
“I requested if Eldora was into account for an Xfinity or Cup race sooner or later, and I used to be advised not right now,” Stewart stated. “So I stated we have been performed.”
Some consider NASCAR pulled the race from Eldora or that NASCAR moved the Truck Race to Knoxville Speedway to spite Stewart, however he is adamant neither is true.
“This was totally our determination and folks want to grasp. I’m extraordinarily pissed off as a observe proprietor that there was zero communication from NASCAR,” he stated. “No one ever had any dialog with me about Eldora or Cup on grime till the take care of Bristol was about to be introduced.”
He added he was additionally ignored when he inquired about his eligibility for subsequent month’s exhibition Busch Conflict on the street course at Daytona Worldwide Speedway. Stewart stated he completely needed to run the race, however nobody at NASCAR adopted up with the three-time Cup champion.
Stewart, feted as a first-ballot inductee into the NASCAR Corridor of Fame final January in one of many closing industry-wide occasions earlier than the pandemic, now feels snubbed by the sequence he is been dedicated to for greater than 20 years.
He has lots on his plate, although, and has change into the T-shirt and denims model of Roger Penske together with his motorsports portfolio. He is obtained a full 2021 schedule of dash automobile races that begins this weekend, full possession of Eldora and partial possession of Paducah (Ky.) Worldwide Raceway and Macon (Ailing.) Speedway. Stewart additionally owns a World of Outlaws staff and is the sequence proprietor of each the All Star Circuit of Champions and a grassroots racing sequence he renamed the All Star Circuit of Champions TQ Midgets.
This 12 months will even mark a brand new enterprise with Corridor of Fame crew chief Ray Evernham on the Famous person Racing Expertise aimed toward attracting all-stars now not competing full-time. The six-race, short-track sequence will air on Saturday nights on CBS, with Stewart competing alongside Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Bobby Labonte, Mark Webber and different large names from numerous disciplines.
He scoffs at a false narrative spreading that Eldora was punished by NASCAR for Stewart’s SRX involvement — “If persons are fearful about Ray Evernham, me and 6 races, they have larger issues to fret about,” he stated — and notes that SRX is racing at each Eldora and Knoxville, the lone grime observe on the Truck Collection schedule.
All his enterprise dealings, and subsequent month’s begin of SHR’s NASCAR season, have Stewart unfold very skinny when he is attempting to prioritize another person in his life for the primary time. He and Pruett have been launched in 2019 by way of FaceTime by drag racing legend Don Prudhomme. They did not meet in particular person till they wound up on the similar motorsports occasion look, and their first date was the week earlier than the pandemic shut down the nation in March.
With nowhere to be for the primary time in his life as a racer, Stewart accepted Pruett’s invitation to spend 4 days with pals at Lake Havasu in Arizona. He stayed for 4 months, dragged her to brief tracks throughout Oklahoma and Texas when his racing schedule resumed, then turned a continuing spectator at her occasions when NHRA started.
Stewart is adapting to life because the supportive spectator at Pruett’s occasions, however his want to grasp Pruett’s type of racing led him to 2 current periods at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing Faculty. The two are diligently working on a master calendar of all their events because Stewart hopes to attend the vast majority of her NHRA races.
His first battle comes at NASCAR’s season-opening Daytona 500, the place he is hoping COVID-19 procedures have relaxed sufficient to permit him into the storage and round his staff. Stewart has not been contained in the NASCAR bubble with SHR because the Las Vegas race final February. However the 500 can be Feb. 14 and he is unsure how that can fly with Pruett on their first Valentine’s Day collectively.
“My private life is the very best it is ever been, by far,” he stated. “She will get me. And I take pleasure in going to her occasions and being the one doing the supporting. I imply, if she needed me to help her at basket-weaving competitions I in all probability would not take pleasure in it, however I’m very proud of this relationship and the place my life is correct now.”
