Two weeks ago it was announced that Tony Stewart would be leaving Joe Gibbs at the end of the season and become a co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing. Today, his sponsors and numbers were announced.
Stewart will have Old Spice and Office Depot as his sponsors. Office Depot will be on the car for 20 races (60 percent of the season) and Old Spice will be on the car for 16 races (40 percent of the season).
Stewart will be driving the No. 14 car in 2009. He chose that number for his hero, A.J. Foyt. He chose to have the second team as the No. 4 because that was his number in the go karts when he first raced.
There was no announcement about who would be chosen as second driver to race the No. 4.
