Having multiple investments in racing teams and having his own league, the Superstar Racing Experience, Tony might be the best driver to do it all. During an appearance in a recent episode of the popular podcast, Bubba the Love Sponge Show, Tony revealed some of his thoughts in and out of racing.

During the conversation, the host took his time to ask Tony, “Are you retired?” Tony, in his usual matter-of-fact tone, replied, “No, not at all, not even close, I just keep shifting around.”
