NASCAR Hall of Famer Tony Stewart has been dating NHRA Top Fuel Dragster pilot Leah Pruett since at least May. He has even showed up at NHRA events with his girlfriend.
In a video posted to YouTube on Sunday, Stewart attended the Frank Hawley Drag Racing School at
Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida. It’s not clear when the video was filmed.
The video is titled “So …. I went to Drag Racing School!” The video is also captioned “From NASCAR to Nitro.”
Stewart — who also co-owns Stewart-Haas Racing and owns Eldora Speedway along with the All Star Circuit of Champions and the upcoming SRX Racing — began testing a Super Comp Dragster in the video. Then, the video shows the long-time stock car and sprint car driver piloting a Top Alcohol Dragster.
It’s not clear at least in this video if Stewart received any licensees from the day of competition. He would have had to go down the track multiple times to receive his license to compete in an NHRA event.
There have been some speculation that Stewart may be a rumored fourth Top Fuel Dragster pilot to the Don Schumacher Racing stable. However, right now, those rumors have not been confirmed by DSR.
The 32-year-old Pruett has been competing in Top Fuel Dragster since the 2013 season. She began in Top Fuel with Dote Racing, before moving to Bob Vandergriff Racing. She also briefly drove for Lagana Racing.
In February 2016, she won her first career race in the class at the Carquest Auto Parts NHRA Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. She defeated Brittany Force to win the race as a member of Bob Vandergriff Racing.
Since then, Pruett has eight career wins in Top Fuel Dragster. She has 11 overall with three wins in Pro Mod.
