Tony Stewart confirmed today that he will compete in the Porter Hire International Sprint Car Series in early December this year. The Series opens at Vodafone Speedway – Western Springs on Saturday the 9th December then heads south to Robertson Holden Speedway for the midweek round and then back for the final round at Western Springs on Saturday the 16th December.
Tony will attend the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Award Banquet at the Wynn Las Vegas in the first week of December before grabbing his helmet and race suit to head to New Zealand for his first ever visit.
Tony will be piloting his Rush Truck Centers Artic Cat J&J Sprint Car which is being shipped late October to ensure it arrives here in time. Jimmy Carr is travelling with Tony to ensure the car is up to the task.
“This has taken months to put this deal together”, said Greg Mosen – Promoter “Tony has an extremely busy schedule, so getting this together is going to be great for the profile of Speedway here in New Zealand” he said.
