FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Legendary driver Tony Stewart will be back in the Summit City next week for the 23rd Rumble in Fort Wayne as the “Columbus Comet” looks to add to his racing résumé next Friday and Saturday at War Memorial Coliseum.
With the Rumble cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, organizers are expecting a big turnout from fans who are hungry to see the well-known event make its return.
Stewart, who has 11 Rumble wins in the Midget field, headlines a pre-entry list of 36 cars in the Midget division – the largest field since 2016. The field includes former winner Mike Fedorcak.
Leading the Rumble “Rookie” class will be 4-time NASCAR Cup Series winner and 2-time USAC National Champion Kenny Schrader and open-wheel fan-favorite “TMez” Thomas Meseraull.
