Tony Stewart went from a two-time Champion Chase contender to a NASCAR Legend Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, capturing his third career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in an all out fashion that only Tony Stewart could produce, in a wild – and at times nail biting – “Walk-Off Win.”
Entering Sunday’s season finale, Stewart had led the points just twice in 2011, ironically after Edwards’ only victory in Las Vegas and following the fall race at New Hampshire. He finished the year with 44 career victories, tied for 15th on the all-time wins list.
Stewart, co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing with Gene Haas, is the first driver-owner to claim the championship since Alan Kulwicki in 1992. The 2011 season is the organization’s third under its current ownership.
Stewart also broke a record for passing most cars during a one race period… an astonishing 118 cars. Here’s what he had to say about that:

With a victory in Sunday’s Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Stewart became the seventh champion to win the season finale in his championship season. He out-dueled runner-up Carl Edwards in a finale befitting a championship showdown, tying Edwards in points – however, Stewart’s five wins bested Edwards’ one, clinching the title for Stewart winning the championship on a tiebreaker, also known as a “Walk-Off Win.”
Stewart won his first championship in 2002 and second in 2005. The Indiana native now joins David Pearson, Lee Petty, Darrell Waltrip and Cale Yarborough – all NASCAR Hall of Fame members or inductees – as three-time champions. Nine drivers in NASCAR Sprint Cup history have won three or more championships.
Stewart entered the season-ending race trailing Edwards by three points. It marked the second consecutive season and fourth time since the inception of the position-based points system in 1975 the champion has overcome a points deficit entering the final race.
Stewart failed to win a race during the 26-race regular season. But he quickly caught fire, winning the first two races of the Chase, at Chicagoland Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He ultimately won five times – twice on consecutive weekends – to break the record for most Chase wins in a single season. Stewart has won 11 times in Chase history, second only to Jimmie Johnson’s 20.
Brought up was the surprising announcement that Darian Grubb, crew chief for Tony Stewart, was informed before Charlotte, that he would not have a job at the end of this season. Here are Darian’s comments when asked in the media center post race:

I would be very comfortable in stating that this final race of the 2011 season was the best one yet. It brought the thrills back to NASCAR racing and the fans were raving.
So, congratulations Carl Edwards, for a great season and for having such a great run. What a great fight for the Championship and for having this race go down in history as one of the ALL-TIME BEST!! Good luck to the No.99 Roush-Fenway team in the 2012 season!

Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet Impala, went fishing for a good cause at the third-annual Office Depot Foundation Charity Fishing Tournament at Lake Okeechobee in Florida on Wednesday, November 2.
The money raised from the tournament will be used to support the Office Depot Foundation’s mission to enhance quality of life for children, families and communities around the world.
In addition to events like the charity fishing tournament, Stewart also works with the Office Depot Foundation to support its National Backpack Program. The two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion helped donate 350,000 backpacks throughout the 2011 back-to-school season to schools and non-profit organizations that work with children in need nationwide.
Stewart’s fishing team finished in the middle of the pack of the 55-boat field, with a total catch weight of just over 20 pounds.
