Tony Stewart enjoyed an extremely special Memorial Day weekend in his home state of Indiana.

The Rushville native first competed in the Little 500, a 410 non-winged sprint car event held the night before the Indianapolis 500.

Stewart finished third in the race held at Anderson Speedway, a quarter-mile asphalt oval located about an hour northeast of Indy.

The three-time NASCAR champion was also joined by Leonard Wood, co-founder of the famed Wood Brothers Racing.

Smoke’s weekend was then capped off by hanging out at the Indy 500, where he drove AJ Foyt’s historic Bowes Seal Fast Watson roadster, which won the iconic race in 1961.

On top of that, his Stewart-Haas Racing team had three drivers — Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer — in the top 15 in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
