Tony Stewart is making a cameo appearance tonight at the Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo. It is the third consecutive year that the NASCAR star has visited the local track.

Presented by West Fargo's Titan Machinery, Stewart will race Late Models, as Modifieds, B-Modifieds and Pure Stocks run support classes.

Races begin at 7 p.m., and general admission tickets are $15. Kids 12 and younger can get in for $5, while reserved tickets are $20 and advance reserved tickets are $17. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time at the Petro Stopping Center, 4510 19th Avenue SW, or by calling 356-5377 or visiting

Even though he keeps coming back, Stewart has yet to win a feature race at RRVS in five attempts. During last June's Late Models races, Stewart placed first in the opening heat, only to take third in the feature.

In August, Stewart made two appearances to race Sprints, finishing fifth and ninth overall.
