More than 3,000 people came to watch Tony Stewart race Tuesday night at the Bartholomew County 4-H Fairgrounds.
Midway through the main feature, some of those fans were headed for the exits.
Stewart, making his first appearance in his hometown since 2001, was knocked out on the 13th of 25 laps in the Midwest TQ Racing League event on Tony Stewart Night at the Bartholomew County Fair. He was running fifth at the time.
“These are motorcycle engines, so they have two coils that run two independent cylinders, and I think one of the coils went out, so basically I was running on two cylinders instead of four,” Stewart said.
