Scootin' Along: Tony Stewart Making The Rounds In Custom Scooter
Nothing can keep Tony Stewart down.
Not even a badly broken leg.
'Smoke' is back at the track this weekend for the first time since injuring his leg in a sprint car accident on Aug. 5.
Facing a long road to recovery, Stewart and his guys at Stewart-Haas Racing have developed quite a unique way to get around the race track - a modified scooter that is capable of running around 10 mph.
Before making its public debut this weekend in Richmond, Smoke tested the capabilities of his new ride in a few interesting ways.
Making sure it could work in the late summer heat, 'Smoke' headed to Egypt for a little off roading and sight seeing.
Next, in a truly remarkable case, SHR worked closely with NASA to test the effects of zero-gravity.
Then it was off to test the speed and agility of the scooter, by attempting to out run the bulls in Pamplona.
He even tried to sneak on the track during Friday night's Nationwide Series race, but luckily NASCAR officials were able to talk him back to the garage.
As a result, Stewart has resorted to racing other scooter riders on the backroads of N.C.
