In the Chase era, Tony's also the only driver to be leading the regular season points standings after the first 26 races to go on to win the championship.

Jeff Gordon in 2004, Matt Kenseth in 2006, Jeff Gordon again in 2007, and Kyle Busch in 2008 were the other regular season "champions" but all failed to win the championship.

He's also never had fewer than a win and 10 top fives in 10 seasons, and he's sure to extend that to 11 seasons. His winning streak as it stands is the best among active drivers after Jeff Gordon failed to win last season, then Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson at 8 extending to this season.

Tony is one of the most pure drivers out there. Races anything any time anywhere under any condition. Like Robby Gordon, both are very talented drivers with more years of racing left.

1st win for Tony as a car owner, 34th of his career, 11th straight season he's won a race which is tied with Dale Jarrett for the 10th longest streak of consecutive winning seasons. In fact it's his first 11 seasons competing in Cup period of which only Lee Petty has done better at 13.

in other words, fucking awesome!

Tony Stewart is also the only driver to have ever won championships under both the traditional point system and chase point system.

He also won the 2006 IROC championship(last year of IROC).

He may be outspoken but he sure can drive! And he can manage a team! And he can win championships! And he can fairly entertain you with his quotes!
