Stewart Haas Racing co-owner and ex-NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart has admitted that he is a little disappointed in himself for the failure to match 2021 Cup champion Kyle Larsons dominant record at Eldora Speedway. The dirt track is owned by the ex-IndyCar champion from 2004 when he was at JGR.

Stewart has won the midget and sprint car races at the track but hasn’t won the silver crown event yet, in the same week. But Kyle Larson has won all these three races in the same weekend on his debut. All of his wins were with comfortable margins against his rivals. The record is something Stewart really wants to experience as well.

In the conversation, he detailed his Eldora races and how he feels about not being able to emulate the same success Kyle Larson has at the track.

Tony Stewart recently sold his Sprint Car racing series to Kyle Larson

Kyle Larson and sprint car champion Brad Sweet have recently purchased the sprint car racing series owned by Stewart, the All-Star Racing championship. Stewart decided to part ways with his series as he saw Larson as the right individual to take the series to the next level.

The takeover was part of Larson and co’s plans to expand their High Limit Racing Series. It was the sprint car racing series the duo built in the 2022 season and has been successfully organizing events since. With the takeover the 2024 season will see an expanded schedule.

The primary aim of the expansion is to make the events more rewarding for the drivers. He wants to introduce more professionalism to the series along with a lucrative prize pool. The 2024 season of High Limit Racing will be a spectacle to watch with the expansion.
