Tony Stewart to go owner in 2009

Today there was a news conference concerning Tony Stewart’s contract with Joe Gibbs Racing, which expires after this season.
Tony Stewart announced that he will not return to Joe Gibbs Racing next season. This expected announcement will end the “longest active driver/crew chief relationship in the Sprint Cup series.”
In 2009, Tony will partner with Haas CNC Racing, to become Stewart-Haas Racing, which will run two full time Sprint cup cars next year.
While this will be Tony’s first venture into NASCAR team ownership, he is already well versed with team ownership as the owner of two teams in the USAC and the World of Outlaw sprints.

So, out with the old and in with the new as Tony will bid farewell to Joe Gibbs and Greg Zippadelli. At a later date, sponsorships, lineups and numbers will be announced…

It is a sad day for “Number 20” fans but a great day for Tony Stewart fans.
