In 1995, Stewart became the first driver to win USAC's version of the Triple Crown (this consisted of winning all 3 USAC Championships, the Midget, Sprint Car, and Silver Crown racing championships) and when he was not racing IndyCars, he raced stock cars. Stewart earned the nickname of "Smoke", first for slipping the right rear tire during dirt races and then for blowing his engine often during his '97 championship run. The Tony Stewart car at the Woodland Auto Exhibit is a display car only. It meets all current NASCAR specifications and could be run throughout the end of this year. Even though it is the same as Stewart runs, it did not come from his fleet but rather from the Germain Racing Team. It was purchased in N. Carolina and was wrapped in Stewart's colors and logos using massive computerized decals/wraps no more hours and hours of painting to get that advertising and sponsorship commitment covered.
This car conforms to the 2012 Sprint Cup rules. It was actually raced by the Germain Racing Team as a Toyota. When we purchased it, we had the body change to conform to Chevy specifications and had it wrapped as "Smoke´s" OFFICE DEPOT race car. All else remains just as it came off the track.
