Tony Stewart is taking his team ownership to the NHRA beginning in 2022 and he made time to talk about it on The Racing Writer’s Podcast. Among the highlights:

• Stewart discusses the challenges he expects entering drag racing

• Experiencing drag racing up close and personal with Don Schumacher Racing

• How Stewart’s view of things changed the more time spent on the starting line

• What the conversation is like between two racers in a relationship (Stewart and fiancee Leah Pruett)

• Trying to describe the sensation of speed driving a Top Fuel dragster compared other vehicles he’s driven

• Why Stewart says it’d be “suicidal” for him to try to compete in NHRA

• Why Matt Hagan was a good fit for TSR

• If there’s anything left Stewart hasn’t driven

• Where Stewart sees NHRA in the motorsports landscape
