'Smoke' spends Memorial Day in sprint car, 9 1/2 months after wreck

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.
