With Tony Stewart’s retirement from racing in NASCAR set in November, the three-time Sprint Cup champion talked about the chance of working with television or radio next season.
The Racing Experts talked exclusively with Stewart at Las Vegas Motor Speedway about the topic.
Q. What is the likelihood of seeing you as a TV analyst or driver analyst on the radio?
Tony Stewart: “There’s some people that have already started expressing interest, but I don’t know how much I want to do. I’m still going to be busy with four teams and sprint car series, a sprint car team, a dirt track in Ohio. I’ve got a lot of projects that are still going to be going on.
“I learned at an early age that it doesn’t cost a dime to listen, so we’re definitely going to listen to what everybody has to offer, and you know, if it’s something that works into our schedule, that seems like something we’d have fun with, we’d definitely look at it.”
Q. So it’s a “wait-and-see” type thing?

Tony Stewart: “Yeah, it’s a little early to know because it’s early in this season, and it would be for next year. I know there’s been a lot of talking going on, but I don’t know that there’s been any solid, final offers yet, because I think everybody’s trying to feel out what I want to do, and I’m not sure I know what I want to do yet. We’re kind of talking to some people to see what would be interesting for us.”
