Tony Stewart Racing to Join NHRA

Tony Stewart Racing is joining the NHRA in 2022, the former racer and team owner announced. His eponymous team will field two fulltime entries, the team said,  including one in Top Fuel for Leah Pruett and one in Funny Car for Matt Hagan.

The manufacturer and the team’s technical alliance associate, along with corporate partners, will be announced at a later date, Stewart said during the team’s announcement.

TSR was formed in November 2000. Since its inaugural season in 2001, TSR has earned 27 owner championships – 14 in USAC, nine in the World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series and four in the All Star Circuit of Champions TQ Midgets. TSR will continue its sprint car program, which is headlined by 10-time WoO champion Donny Schatz. TSR’s NHRA and sprint car entries will operate out of its existing 25,000-square-foot facility in Brownsburg, Indiana.

TSR will make its NHRA debut during the 2022 season opener Feb. 17-20 at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
