SHR co-owner Tony Stewart looked healthy as he talked about his desire to get back behind the wheel of a race car after a broken leg last fall ended his season. “I feel great,” he said.

Stewart said it has been hard for him to stay out of a race car. He explained that some Sprint Cup drivers only drive in the 36 races that are part of the Sprint Cup schedule but because he loves to race he would sometimes race Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in addition to a Sunday afternoon Sprint Cup race.

The team announced last year that Kevin Harvick would join Stewart and Danica Patrick in the driver lineup, that Ryan Newman’s contract would not be renewed and that the team would expand to four cars with Kurt Busch joining them for the 2014 season.

“It’s actually gone better than expected,” SHR co-owner Gene Haas said referring to the team’s expansion to a four-car operation. “I was at the shop today and there was actually quite a bit of enthusiasm for it, pleasantly surprised. A lot of people have patted me on the back and said that it was a good decision and that always feels good.”
