Tony Stewart will drive just about anything. Anything just happens to include a tank. The three time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion was at Charlotte Motor Speedway today to drive a tank.
Stewart said following his incident with Matt Kenseth on Saturday night that he would wreck the No. 17 every chance he got. Today he got into a tank.
Ironically Stewart did not wear a helmet for the event which is disappointing considering his recent toss last weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. Also it is worth nothing that Stewart did not run over any media members, I suppose he had more productive things to do?
A tip of the visor to David Caraviello of NASCAR.com for informing us that the tank is a M-36 Jackson.

Have you heard the rumor? You know which one. The one what Greg Zipadelli will be the crew chief for Tony Stewart.
Yep. I have heard it. I heard it yesterday. I heard it this off season. I heard it last year. I have heard it since Tony Stewart left Joe Gibbs Racing.
This rumor will continue. And there are plenty of reasons for it to continue. Greg Zipadelli no longer needs to leave...
Tony Stewart driver of the No.14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet had passed Roush Fenway driver Matt Kenseth on the restart on lap 332, the two were racing hard when Stewart slipped up a little and Kenseth tried to regain the lead, moments later they got into each other. The wreck essentially ended both of their nights.
NASCAR which has been more lenient with drivers the last couple seasons...

With last weekends controversy between Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth, we bring you 5 awesome helmet tosses in NASCAR history.
