For the team’s inaugural season in the 2022 National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Camping World Drag Racing Series, Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) is going to partner with Dodge//SRT and Mopar.
They will serve as the primary sponsor for Top Fuel driver Leah Pruett and three-time Funny Car World Champion Matt Hagan in TSR.

“I’m really pleased to have Dodge//SRT and Mopar as partners with our new NHRA venture as manufacturer and sponsor for our two entries in Top Fuel and Funny Car with Leah and Matt,” says Tony Stewart, TSR team owner.
“It shows confidence in your program when an OEM wants to be on your team and for you to help support their program as well. They have obviously had a great relationship with both drivers for the last few years and to be able to continue that association is key to this team’s success and a huge benefit to the continuity for everyone involved.”
Formed in 2000, TSR has earned 27 owner championships – 14 in USAC, nine in the World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series, and four in the All Star Circuit of Champions TQ Midgets.
While making its inaugural season in the NHRA campaign, TSR will also continue to run in its sprint car program for the 22nd consecutive season.
With already a dozen of NHRA titles, Pruett and Hagan will be a force to reckon in the NHRA Series for TSR.
