Tony Stewart is coming back to NASCAR. But the NASCAR Hall of Famer is not returning to the Cup Series.

Instead he is returning to the Xfinity Series on July 4th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana, according to NASCAR.com. He will compete in the Indiana 250 at the historic track on the day of America’s birth.

“Everyone knows what Indy means to me, so I can’t think of a better place to race on Fourth of July weekend,” Stewart, who grew up 45 minutes from Indianapolis in the towns of Columbus and Rushville, Indiana, said in a team release. “It’s going to be cool making history by turning left and right in a stock car at the Brickyard, and the racing will be full of action and contact. Any time you can drive any race car at the speedway is special, and you know I’m going for the win. The date is already circled on my calendar.”

Stewart has appeared in 94 Xfinity Series races. He last competed in a race in this series in 2013.

In fact the lone race that he competed in, he won. That was the Drive4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 23, 2013 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The win was one of 11 Xfinity Series wins in his career. He has 30 Top 5 finishes in 94 races from 1995 through 2013. He has also led 1,350 laps in the series.

According to the press release announcing his return, the car number, along with his sponsor will be announced at a later date. Also, the team will announce his crew chief, as well, in the future.
