The two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion and driver of the #14 Office Depot, Mobil 1 Chevrolet – Tony Stewart visited K1 Speed in Hollywood, Florida on Monday for a media day and to do a meet and greet with fans. Tony was in town for the filming of upcoming commercials for the Miami/Homestead Speedway race this coming November, and to take a few laps on our latest indoor kart racing facility. Some lucky fans and Homestead Speedway President Matt Becherer got a chance to race with Tony at our latest indoor kart racing facility and put down some pretty impressive laps. Tony has visited K1 Speed before, as he will sometimes pop into our K1 Speed location in Ontario, California when he is in town for the NASCAR race during the start of the season that is held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California located just down the street from the facility.
Stewart is currently sitting 9th in NASCAR Sprint Cup points just ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr., and will head to Chicagoland Speedway’s Tri-Oval this weekend for the kick-off of the Chase for the Sprint up Championship. Come out to any K1 Speed location this Sunday and check out all the race action on our multiple HD TV’s throughout the facility and watch Tony Stewart and his team make a run for the podium.
