Tony Stewart, NASCAR and United States Auto Club Champion, has been part of the J.D. Byrider team since 1997. The popularity of car racing hass never been higher, and J.D. Byrider looks forward to many more wins with Tony. He will also be appearing at a J.D. Byrider sponsored event at the end of July.

Indiana native Tony Stewart has a winning track record in racing. Stewart has competed and won on every level, including three national go kart championships, the United States Auto Club Triple Crown, an Indy Racing League Championship and two NASCAR Sprint Cup Championships. As one of the premier drivers in the NASCAR circuit, Tony Stewart knows how to recognize a winning team.

Tony Stewart has been a part of the J.D. Byrider team since 1997, when J.D. Byrider began sponsoring a stock dirt late model car, which Stewart drives a couple of times a year. Since the J.D. Byrider sponsorship began, the team has grown: in addition to Stewart as the late model dirt-track driver, the team includes Steve Barnett in a second late model dirt-track car and Kraig Kinser in a winged, open-wheel sprint car on the legendary World of Outlaws Circuit.

Stewart is best known for driving the #20 Home Deport Toyota Camry for the famed Joe Gibbs Racing organization. However, Stewart continues to drive as part of the J.D. Byrider team, and the company is proud of its association with this proven winner.

It's all about teamwork
Although most of the focus in racing naturally centers on the cars and drivers, savvy racing fans know that a successful racing team is made up of a group of individuals - drivers, sponsors and crew - working together toward a common goal. Today, race fans are smarter than ever before: The popularity of car racing in all its forms has never been higher.

The teamwork aspect is what drew J.D. Byrider to the sport. The company takes a unique approach in the used car industry, viewing customer service, quality and auto financing as part of a team effort. So sponsorship of a team sport like racing makes sense on many levels.

Stewart will appear at J.D. Byrider Night of Speed event
On July 24, J.D. Byrider will sponsor a night of open-wheel racing action at O'Reilly Raceway Park west of Indianapolis. The Night of Speed is a kickoff event for the Kroger Speed Fest and will feature two exciting races, a 30-lap USAC Mopar National Midget Championship Series sponsored by Toyota and the J.D.
