Tony Stewart is certainly no worse for wear when it comes to racing sprint cars despite an accident almost a year ago that left him with two broken bones in his right leg.
Stewart won the feature at Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Mich., on Friday night - earning a victory in his first sprint car race since his Aug. 5 accident last season that forced him to miss the final 15 NASCAR Cup series races of 2013.
Early Saturday morning, Stewart posted the following message to his Twitter account:
"If you haven't heard already, I ran my sprint car tonight and won! Felt great to run it again. Was a 2nd place car but had a little luck :)"
In May, Stewart tested in a sprint car at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia.
