Last Lap: Tony Stewart Gone Fishin'

Tony Stewart went fishin' on Lake Lloyd with pro angler Jimmy Houston to promote the Coke Zero 400.

Tony Stewart and Jimmy Houston enjoy a day of fishing out on Lake Lloyd.


Tony Stewart joined professional angler Jimmy Houston on the waters of Lake Lloyd, located in Daytona International Speedway's infield, as part of media day for the Coke Zero 400.

Stewart, who has won the 400-mile night race four times, enjoyed his time out on the waters with Houston but only caught two small fish.

"To catch fish at this time of day is pretty good and being out there with Jimmy (Houston) is a lot of fun," Stewart said. "Anytime you go out, it's more about the company that you're with rather than even catching the fish."

After fishing, Stewart spoke with media members about the upcoming race and took them for a thrill ride around the 2.5-mile superspeedway.
