  • Stewart's Victory at the Brickyard, a win-win for the Home Depot fans, customers
    NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series driver Tony Stewart scored the biggest win of his career when he drove his #20 Home Depot Chevrolet to victory lane in the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard on Sunday. While the hometown hero cemented his leadership with his name on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's race trophy, Stewart's sponsor, The Home Depot , put a 10 percent discount on bricks, wall blocks and pavers this weekend at all U.S. The Home Depot stores.

    "First it was ladders and fences, and now it's bricks and pavers," said Stewart, alluding to The Home Depot's previous 10 percent discount on ladders and fences that followed his fence-climbing celebratory antics at Daytona (Fla.) and New Hampshire. "I plan to keep winning races and helping to drive down the cost of home improvement for The Home Depot customers."

    Paved with 3.2 million bricks in 1909, the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway is best known as the Brickyard. While its surface is now covered with asphalt, a yard of bricks remains at the start/finish line as a testament to the track's famed history.

    Stewart dreamed of racing at the Brickyard ever since he wheeled a go-kart at age 7 in Westport, Ind. When that dream was realized in his debut at the Brickyard as an IRL IndyCar Series rookie in 1996, Stewart expanded that dream into winning at the Brickyard.

    "This is one of those days that I don't want to end," said Stewart, who enjoyed an emotional victory with plenty of friends and family sharing in the experience. "I don't want to see the sun set. If I could make this day longer, I'd do it in a heartbeat because it's definitely the greatest day of my life up to this point, professionally and personally. I couldn't ask for more."

  • Tony turns over hearse to 'Unique Whips'
    Red-hot NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series driver Tony Stewart quietly turned over a pair of cars from his collection to celebrity customizer Will Castro a few weeks ago at the 16th Street Speedway in Indianapolis.

    The first car, a Lamborghini, didn't raise many eyebrows, as A-list athletes and cool cars go together like peanut butter and jelly. In fact, Castro has worked on more Lamborghinis then he can remember. But the second ride was a little different -- a baby blue 1984 Cadillac Brougham hearse.
