Tony Stewart Wins Prelude To The Dream At Eldora Speedway

Despite a late-minute surge from folks like drag racing champion Cruz Pedregon, who proved quite adept at turning circles at Wednesday night's fourth annual Old Spice Prelude to the Dream charity race at Eldora Speedway, the winner ended up being the man that brought the racers there — Tony Stewart.

Eldora Speedway's Only Three Hours Away...

...and the Prelude To The Dream race starts at 7:00 PM tonight. We could totally make it down to the Tony Stewart-owned track.
