Sneak preview: Tony Stewart reads about his impact in racing from those who know him best


In a feature running on NBCSN’s NASCAR America at 6 p.m. today, Tony Stewart will reflect on his racing career through the eyes of four people shaped by it.

Stewart’s father, Nelson, Indianapolis-based journalist Robin Miller, former crew chief Greg Zipadelli and longtime personal manager Eddie Jarvis each wrote letters expressing their appreciation for Stewart’s impact on racing and their lives. Stewart is retiring from racing in NASCAR after the 2016 season.

As shown in the preview above, the three-time series champion read each letter and reacted to each on camera in Sunday’s feature.

The feature on Stewart also will run before Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. NBCSN’s broadcast of Sunday’s race at the Brickyard will begin at 2 p.m. with NASCAR America leading into Countdown to Green and coverage of the race, which will start at 3:19 p.m.
