Got a call from a co-worker that was working a part time last night at the IHOP on Coliseum in Fort Wayne that a certain person was eating there. Managed to catch up with him after he got done eating...

So, for one brief moment I became a groupie...actually, even tho I don't call myself a Tony Stewart fan, the guy is pretty down to earth and will actually have a chat with the regular joes...

And, he won all the heats and such that he ran in the outlaw midgets while he was here in town. Well won most of them on Friday night and all of them on Saturday night...

I met Tony again tonight. He was at a local bar after the Sprints at the Coliseum tonight.

Very cool and very down to earth. We talked about the Championship and Carl.

He was hanging out and drinking beer with all the regular joes in the bar.

I talked to Tony once a few years ago. He is a really cool guy. I got him to sign a drawer on my tool box I have at work at a signing another time. I am a Tony fan!! Watched him in Indy cars before he went to NASCAR.
