Tony Stewart was granted a release from the final year of his contract with JGR and will head to HAAS/CNC Racing as a part-owner and driver. The team will be renamed Stewart Haas Racing in 2009. Rumors have it that Tony will change both car numbers next season. The rumors say that Stewart would probably choose the #14 as his car number to honor his hero, the great A.J. Foyt. It looks as if current Penske driver Ryan Newman will join Tony. Old Spice and Office Depot will probably be Tony's sponsers, and rumors have it Newman will field a car sponsored by Jack Daniels.
