If you wasn't racing what would you be doing? I'd probably own and run my own resturant.
How long have you been interested in racing and how did u get started in racing?

I've been involved in racing for eighteen years by the encouragement of my father who also raced cars.

Who has had the biggest impact on your racing career and why?

My dad Mike Stewart, and family who always encouraged me to do my best, and has made many sacrifices to help myself and my brother Darren able do what we love.... racing.

Where do you see Sprint Car racing five years from now?

I see Sprint Car Racing becoming more popular, on TV more, a larger fan growth, and better track facilities.

Do you plan on staying in Sprint Cars or would you like to move to another division?

I am satisfied with Sprint car driving but I do not object to advancing to another division of racing if the opportunity arises.
