Stewart Siblings Make Drag Racing a Family Affair

By Emily Hood

12-year-old Sam Stewart and 8-year old Sarah Stewart are third generation drag racers who recently completed their racing seasons. The Stewart siblings have been around the racetrack since they were born, with their grandpa and father racing many years before they were born. Racing is a large part of the Stewart family dynamic as the whole family helps to teach the kids about the car and prepare them for the high speeds that they experience while going down the track. Because of the help that Sam and Sarah have received, they have experienced a lot of success in the sport and travel all around the country to race.

“It’s fun because it’s different, and none of your ordinary friends would probably do it. It’s just kinda in my blood so as soon as I hit that gas pedal I’m really excited,” said Sarah Stewart.
