Tony Stewart Racing Joining NHRA In 2022, Leah Pruett And Matt Hagan Named As New Teams Drivers

The championship-winning racecar driver who has successfully transitioned to being a championship-winning team owner is joining the NHRA in 2022. Tony Stewart Racing (TSR), will field two fulltime entries starting at the beginning of next season

Leah Pruett will pilot the TSR Top Fuel Dragster while Matt Hagan will buckle in to the TSR Funny Car.

“I appreciate all forms of racing and I’ve always been intrigued about drag racing and NHRA, in particular. Back in 2009 when Tony Schumacher and I were both representing the U.S. Army, I got to hang out with him and Don Schumacher at the U.S. Nationals. Tony ended up winning and after taking it all in, I was hooked. But it wasn’t until I met Leah and started going to races regularly, where I saw the strategy and the preparation firsthand, that I truly understood it.”
