Recently, NASCAR legend and Stewart-Haas Racing team co-owner Tony Stewart was involved in a bizarre accident. He fell off his ‘one-wheeler’ yesterday and had to visit a hospital for a check-up.
Bob Pockrass of Fox NASCAR reveals that Tony’s spokesman made a statement announcing his injury. Bob writes, “If you see Tony Stewart with a black eye — yesterday his one-wheeler stopped abruptly, sending him off of it.
“His spokesman confirmed he was checked by doctors & awake & alert the whole time. He has no races scheduled for next couple of weeks so any impact on his schedule TBD”
After that, Bob explains in a tweet what a ‘One-wheeler’ is. He wrote, “A one-wheel scooter-type with a board you stand on. Runs on a battery.”
Tony Stewart was recently in the news when he announced his upcoming racing venture. He along with some former NASCAR personalities are launching the ‘Superstar Racing Experience Series’.
Partnering him are CBS and Jeff Gordon’s former crew chief and NASCAR ‘Hall of Famer’, Ray Evernham.
In an official statement by the SRX series, Stewart said, “SRX is a series where the cars will be so evenly matched that talent instead of equipment will win the race.
“The competition will be intense, and thanks to the vision of such strong leaders in the sports and entertainment industry, millions will be able to watch live and in primetime on CBS.”
Additionally, Sports Business Journal reports that the series will feature a series of top NASCAR drivers and some former drivers. And the series will race on short-tracks across the country.
After the launch of the series, it was rumored that it will compete with NASCAR. However, Tony put an end to those rumors by refuting them. It will only complement the stock car racing series.
