Stewart-Haas Racing Expected to Make Announcement on Friday

Several sources are indicating that Tony Stewart and his newly formed Stewart-Haas Racing are expected to make an announcement this Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. While many people are quick to jump to the conclusion that this announcement will put a close to the highly anticipated second driver scenario, that does not appear to be the case. Instead, Stewart is expected to officially announce that his car next season will be the no. 14 - the same number driven by racing legend, AJ Foyt - and, that he has come to an agreement that will partner Office Depot and Old Spice as his primary sponsors in 2009.
The general concensus is that Ryan Newman, who recently announced his departure from Penske Racing next season, will eventually be tabbed as the second driver for Stewart’s organization. While Newman says that he’s getting close to finalizing his decision on who he will drive for next season and Stewart says that they’re narrowing down their choices for a second driver, Newman is not expected to be involved in any announcements over the racing weekend.
