It's been a busy week for Tony Stewart, who was racing sprint cars on Thursday night at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois, one night after hosting the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Eldora Speedway.
Stewart finished sixth on the 3/8-mile dirt track just outside of St. Louis in the winged sprints main event, which was won by Rico Abreu.
In his return to driving sprint cars for the first time since breaking his right leg last year, Stewart finished first and third in two races in Michigan last week.
Stewart was expected to drive in Friday's Sprint Cup Series practice at 11:35 a.m. ET at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in preparation for Sunday's Crown Royal Presents the John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard (1 p.m. ET, ESPN).
