LAS VEGAS (AP) - Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart has won the 2013 Myers Brothers Award for contributions to the sport in his role as owner of Eldora Speedway.
The award from the National Motorsports Press Association is kept secret, so Stewart thought he was at Thursday's ceremony only to support his Stewart-Haas Racing teams.
Instead, he was called to the stage to accept the award for bringing a national NASCAR race to the dirt track in Rossburg, Ohio, for the first time in 43 years. Eldora hosted the Truck Series in July.
Stewart walked to the stage without the use of a cane, but needed assistance climbing the stairs. He missed the final 15 weeks of the season with a broken leg, but says he will be ready for the Daytona 500.
