Tony Stewart Racing will field two fulltime entries in 2022 – one in Top Fuel for nine-time event winner Leah Pruett and one in Funny Car for 39-time event winner Matt Hagan.

“When I retired from fulltime driving I said it wasn’t the end, but the beginning of a new chapter. This is proof of that,” said Stewart, who also co-owns Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series with Gene Haas.

“I appreciate all forms of racing and I’ve always been intrigued about drag racing and NHRA, in particular. Back in 2009 when Tony Schumacher and I were both representing the U.S. Army, I got to hang out with him and Don Schumacher at the U.S. Nationals. Tony ended up winning and after taking it all in, I was hooked.

“But it wasn’t until I met Leah and started going to races regularly, where I saw the strategy and the preparation firsthand, that I truly understood it.”

I think he's going to need to add onto the shop in Indiana. Running 2 sprint cars and 3 TF cars out of that shop, it's going to be tight...

Glad he is still active in motor sports. I do miss watching him wheel a sprint car though.

Just my $0.02

He's engaged to Leah Pritchett, (Pruett). I think that has a lot to do with it. She has a house here, and I've seen both of them in town a few times. As far as I know, they're not yet married.

I think the wedding is coming up in a month or two.
