NASCAR: Tony Stewart back in sprint car for first time since crash

'Smoke', also known as Tony Stewart, spent Memorial Day driving a sprint car, 9 1/2 months after his accident.

NASCAR Sprint Cup regular Tony Stewart was involved in a scary sprint car wreck that broke his right leg last year.

This led to months of rehabilitation that forced him to cut his 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season short before the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup began, but we all knew this day was coming.

But yesterday, Stewart is back in a sprint car.

'Smoke' to post some pictures on Twitter of him celebrating Memorial Day inside the very type of vehicle he wrecked last August.
