I wondered if Tony was doing any of these charity things this year since I had not seen any mention of it. Glad he hasn't abandoned his Indiana folk, although the more he gets involved with his North Carolina-based team, the less we'll see of him in Indiana.

He made no mention of being there when it was in the Star. We thought about going to Dismores track since John Andretti would be there but cancelled, he's a sneaky one, lol. But what I'm thinking is he's in Central Indiana and he's showing up places. I look for him to run at the Speedrome he used to show up there every once in a while. But I wont hold my breath I'll watch him run Sunday.

Those are great pictures. I think it's cool how he gets right down to their level to talk with them. He really does look happy.

And I still think he's got cute feet. LOL

Did you see how he looked at that little boy and giving him full attention, that was sweet. And I agree he does have the cutest feet along with a few other things.

Do you suppose the watch is so he will be on time for business meetings. :) I do like how he gives these kids his full attention.

I love Tony....
when I went to the home Depot signing in Richmond in May, there were little kids at the corner in the front of the line and he went straight to them and knelt down by them and everyone in the line went "awwww"..I think Tony Stewart is the absolute best NASCAR driver in the way of his caring, besides his driving talents and I am so glad to be able to enjoy all that he shares of himself with race fans. He is such a good role model for people of all ages.

as for the watch, Tony said on the radio show that he is not even answering his phone so maybe he needs the watch to tell him the time instead of his phone.. maybe it is a heartfelt gift from someone..maybe Haas told him that he needs to be more prompt now that he is a team owner? MAYBE... he has so many things going on now a days that he actually needs to have the time so he doesn't miss connections of getting from one place to another..

Oh. HOW SWEET is he?! I love this man.

And the watch... That is SO hot. Call me shallow, but that's one of the first things I notice about Zippy...not that either of them really need anything to help make them hotter. LMAO. ;)

“Go Tony!!!”
