Former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart, NASCAR driver Kyle Larson and Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III made a USO tour stop to visit troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, last week.
“It’s just a great opportunity for us to come spend a day with our military men and women [who] give us the opportunity to have the freedoms that we have,” Stewart said.
Along with meeting troops and their families, the group toured a KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft, saw a working dog demonstration and got to try out MacDill’s state-of-the-art aerial refueling simulator
