Curtis Stewart Pleased and Proud of Success Experienced in 2019

Continuing to find speed throughout the 2019 campaign, Curtis Stewart was able to finish the year ranked third in the standings.

“We were happy with the results of our 2019 season,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “We entered the season striving to do best we could in points with a top-five finish as our goal. We were excited to finish third in points.”

Throughout the year, Stewart was able to post 10 top-10 finishes, including a string of four straight top-five’s from the end of July through August. He was honored at the year-end banquet with the Most Improved Driver Award.

The success Stewart attributes back to the amount of practice put in by his team.

“Our most memorable moments this season were the times at the track on practice nights making the car faster,” he commented. “We had a couple of other great drivers including Cameron McGlashan to help us out.

“Another great moment was when I had the opportunity to race against my brother in the Bone Stock division.”

On top of his own endeavors in the G.D. Coates Used Car Superstore Mini Stock class, S2RT Racing entered a bone stock in the Signs of Innovation Bone Stock division, including a car for his brother Shawn Stewart.

“We were excited to expand our team this season,” he commented. “We were supposed to have two bone stocks, but that didn’t work out this season. Instead, we only had my brother join this year and it was a blast to have him at the track as part of the team!”

Shawn Stewart was able to have his own success, scoring a top-10 finish in each of his four starts this season.

The consistency found by both brothers is attributed back to not only the practice as Stewart previously mentioned, but time spent working on their cars.

“Well, I wish we could say that we spent a lot of time at “the shop” this season, however we don’t have a shop at this time,” Curtis Stewart said. “Instead we put hours and hours into our car on the gravel driveway to make our car what it was in 2019.”

Now heading into 2020, Stewart admits that they will not be focusing on points, but “racing just for fun,” with plans to travel a lot to other tracks like Flamboro Speedway, Full Throttle Motor Speedway, and Jukasa Motor Speedway.
