Fantasy Nascar - Tony Stewart

Tony Stewart - Fantasy Auto Racing

Tony Stewart is one of the most versatile and successful NASCAR drivers in the world. Tony Stewart has enjoyed success in the NASCAR Nextel Cup, NASCAR Busch series and the NASCAR Craftsman truck series and has raced in the Indianapolis 500. Stewart makes a safe driver pick any week of the season for your NASCAR fantasy team. He always has a chance to take the checkered flag.

Born in 1971 in Columbus, Indiana, Tony Stewart started racing go-karts at an early age and has never looked back. He moved from go-carts to midgets to midgets and on up to the highest levels of the racing world where he is always a threat to win. Tony Stewart currently drives the number 20 car for Joe Gibbs Racing, sponsored by Home Depot.

Here is a list of his accomplishments:

Tony Stewart also owns a sprint car team and has won ownership titles in USAC. Starting in 2007 he s also the co-host of a weekly radio show on Sirius Satellite radio.

Though Tony Stewart's 2007 NASCAR Nextel cup season has started slowly, he recently was able to take his first checkered flag and I look for him to be a strong contributor to any fantasy NASCAR team able to acquire him for the rest of the season. As you can see from his wins per year, Tony Stewart has won 5 races each of the last two years and at least 2 every year since 1999. This type of consistency is rare in any form of fantasy sports, but especially valuable in fantasy NASCAR. The only other NASCAR driver that I value as highly as Tony Stewart is Jeff Gordon, and either will make a solid anchor for your team.

Another important point to consider is if you are competing in a keeper league (where you can retain drivers from one year to the next), Stewart is only in his mid 30s, so he has many productive driving years left. This makes him an even more valuable asset.
