Tony Stewart had kissed the bricks at Indy and could have jetted off to any vacation destination.

Or he could have headed home for a night of rest during NASCAR’s 9-month schedule.

Instead, a little more than 24 hours after winning the Brickyard 400, Stewart traveled to Iowa to watch sprint car races.

But when some fans noticed the driver nicknamed Smoke, they began heckling him for hanging around the track on a Monday night.

Sprint car driver Terry McCarl grabbed a microphone.

“This guy just won the Brickyard yesterday,” McCarl says he told the crowd. “He could be in Hawaii today with a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and instead, he’s at Oskaloosa, Iowa, at a dirt track race.”

The fans erupted in cheers.
