Stewart Plans to Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Tony Stewart says he will return to sprint car racing next season, according to Kendra Jacobs, co-host of Motor Racing Network's 'Winged Nation. Jacobs visited Stewart on Monday night. She said on Tuesday's show that Stewart gave her explicit instructions to tell 'Winged Nation' listeners he will continue to race sprint cars despite breaking his right tibia and fibula in a sprint car crash Aug. 5 at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Jacobs said on 'Winged Nation' that Stewart's sprint car crew is preparing for his return.

"His race team, (crew chief) Jimmy Carr and those guys are already building his sprint cars for next year," Jacobs said on the weekly show that details winged sprint car racing throughout the country and can be heard at MotorRacingNetwork.com.
