Sure, Tony Stewart was involved in a scary sprint car wreck that broke his right leg and led to months of rehabilitation that forced him to cut his 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season short before the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup began, but we all knew this day was coming.
Stewart is back in a sprint car.
'Smoke' took to Twitter on Monday -- you know, because he can do that now -- to post some pictures of him celebrating Memorial Day inside the very type of vehicle he wrecked last August.
Check out his tweets below for the images and his responses to how he felt getting back in the car.
Thank you to Rusty Rush and everyone @rushtruckcenter for helping me. This was a huge day for me. 9 1/2 months since I've been in one— Tony Stewart (@TonyStewart) May 27, 2014
@MJR747 it felt great. Like an old pair of shoes— Tony Stewart (@TonyStewart) May 27, 2014
@_BIG_Ron_ yes there are. Tethers to the torque tube so my accident won't happen again— Tony Stewart (@TonyStewart) May 27, 2014
