That’s why it’s so disappointing for Harvick to see the lack of celebration of Stewart’s career, especially being a year removed from the grand celebration Jeff Gordon received on his way out.
“I know that Tony probably would say that he didn’t want that but I don’t think anybody has done a very good job of giving him the credit for the time that he has put in and had in the sport,” Harvick added. “A three-time champion, multiple race winner, IndyCar champion and winner, and to auto racing in general. It’s been pretty disheartening to me to see the lack of credit that he has gotten.”
Whether you’re a fan of Stewart or not, you can’t deny the amount of excitement and popularity he has brought to NASCAR during his career.
