The huge milestone would make them the first married couple to participate in the same NASCAR event since 1999 when Elton Sawyer and Patty Moise achieved a similar feat. Jessica celebrated the recognition via a statement that read:

"It's amazing to get an opportunity to compete at this level. I'm looking forward to the experience."


She noted that it was her first time driving a truck and expressed her excitement that the race was happening on dirt. She concluded, thanking everyone that has made such a great dream possible.

Per Fox News, 37-year-old Stewart is a full-time driver in the Truck Series while Jessica does dirt modifieds on the northeast circuit. She will drive a second truck for her husband, making them the first couple to race for the same team.


Earlier this month, NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace opened up about his experience amid the lockdown.

In a recent interview, Jessica spoke about how their 5-year-old son Parker is fascinated about their joint participation and confused that they are on the same team even though they have different race patterns.


The doting mother shared her excitement at the thought of sharing the story of her and Stewart's participation, noting that it would be a remarkable story for their grandchildren regardless of the outcome.

Earlier this month, NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace opened up about his experience amid the lockdown. The renowned stock car driver revealed that he enjoyed spending time with his longtime girlfriend Amanda Carter and their new puppy, Asher.

He explained that as the racing season is about to begin, he would miss his partner dearly. The 27-year-old also gushed about how their new Aussiedoodle brought joy to their lives, calling the pup a handful.
