Charlotte, N.C. (Nov. 12, 2013) – As part of the revamped Glory Road set to debut Saturday, Jan. 11, the NASCAR Hall of Fame announced the third of nine exclusive sneak peeks included in the exhibit. The 2011 No. 14 Chevrolet Impala that was driven to victory by Tony Stewart in the final race of the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season will join the 18 historic cars that will comprise the exhibit.

About Tony Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet Impala

Tony Stewart drove the 2011 No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet Impala to victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the final race of the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. He came to the race locked in a tight point battle with Carl Edwards, who was ahead by three points. Edwards won the pole and Stewart started at a distant 15th. During the high-stakes race, Edwards led the first 14 laps and went to the front four times before Stewart finally made it to the front on lap 123. Both drivers led several more times with Stewart taking the lead for good on lap 232 of the 267 lap event. Stewart beat Edwards to the line by 1.3 seconds for his 44th career victory. In an unprecedented event, both Stewart and Edwards tied with 2,403 points for the season. The tie was broken based on the number of wins each driver acquired during the year. Tony Stewart was awarded his third NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship with five wins for 2011 while Edwards, with one win, came home second.
