Saturday night at Charlotte, Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/National Wild Turkey Federation Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing, joins the exclusive club of 15 by making his 15th appearance in an All-Star event ' the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.
The NBA has Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and Shaquille O'Neal on its list with 15 All-Star appearances. Baseball greats such as Brooks Robinson, Ozzie Smith and Yogi Berra each played in 15 All-Star Games. And proving how elusive 15 is, no NFL player has played in 15 Pro Bowls. The only one to come close is Merlin Olsen with 14. Along with the his 2009 win, Stewart has scored an impressive eight top-fives and earned an average finish of eighth in 14 career All-Star Race starts.-True Speed Communication
