AJ Foyt | Tony Stewart
Legend & Legacy
November 20, 2011, Tony Stewart secured his 3rd NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship, by winning the 2011 Ford 400 race he had to win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The manner in which he won that race reminded me so much of the dirt racer he is. It also reminded me of the man he himself admired so much – AJ.
Tony’s car number that night was number 14, the number associated with his hero. Tony’s respect for Foyt is such that when Tony began his NASCAR Stewart Haas Racing team, he personally called AJ and asked if he could use that number.
The way Tony’s drove the wheels of his #14 Chevy, their connection, the sharing of the number 14, and AJ’s legend was the inspiration for
“The Legend & The Legacy”
