Shane Stewart Named "Mr. Sprint Car"-- Again
KNOXVILLE, IOWA (August 15, 2004) - "I'll put it right up on my TV when I get home, with my other one," said Cox Design & Metal Fabrication Southern Iowa SprintWeek titlist Shane Stewart last night when asked what he was going to do with his "Mr. Sprint Car" statue. Stewart, of Bixby, Oklahoma, bested 228 other sprint car drivers during the 8-night point championship between the dirt tracks in Knoxville and Oskaloosa to capture the $3,000 top prize and successfully defend his 2003 title. Besides Stewart, car owner Scott Chilcutt and the mIn Motorsports crew also earned the unique trophies for their week-long efforts which culminated with the Hard Charger award at the 44th annual Knoxville Nationals, presented by the Midwest Ford Dealers.
Winners during the week included Tim Kaeding (Saturday Knoxville Casey's 410), David Hesmer (Saturday Knoxville Casey's 360), Loren Langerud (Sunday Knoxville Brodix 360 Tournament of Champions), Jeff Shepard (Monday Oskaloosa 410 Front Row Challenge), Dickie Gaines (Tuesday Oskaloosa Non-Winged Ultimate Challenge), Tim Kaeding (Wednesday Knoxville 410 Nationals Preliminary), Danny Lasoski (Thursday Knoxville 410 Nationals Preliminary), Daryn Pittman (Friday Knoxville 410 Kele World Challenge), Danny Lasoski (Saturday Knoxville 410 National Championship).
