Tony Stewart might just be the hottest driver in NASCAR right now. With his win Sunday in Las Vegas, he's won two races to start 2012 (if you count his duel victory), three of the last four and five of the last 10 races last season. So wait, let me take back that opening line and just say, Tony Stewart IS the hottest driver in NASCAR right now.
And how about this stat, the win in Vegas on Sunday, means Smoke has won on every active track on the NASCAR circut.
"That's a huge personal accomplishment for me," sais Stewart. "I take a lot of pride in being good in different types of cars, at least being competitive in different types of cars, being competitive at different racetracks. This is one we've been close a couple times and it got away."
What's equally as impressive is that Stewart has now done this, with two different crew chiefs, Darian Grubb last season, and Steve Addington this year.
