The three-time Cup Series champion will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame alongside his former car owner, Joe Gibbs, and teammate Bobby Labonte. Driver Buddy Baker and mechanic Waddell Wilson rounded out the Class of 2020. “It totally changed from watching my moment to enjoying seeing the guy who helped build my career with Joe and then following that up with Bobby,” Stewart said about hearing his name called first. “It wasn’t about me. It was about all of us and this whole group that was going in.” Stewart won Cup Series championships in 2002 and 2005 racing for Gibbs after Labonte won one in 2000.
Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer has a message for the rapper who is a Toronto Raptors fan: Stay off the court. Drake, who regularly gets in the face of opposing players while at his courtside seat, crossed a boundary by an impromptu massage of Toronto head coach Nick Nurse’s shoulders during a game. “I don’t know how much he’s on the court. It sounds like you guys are saying it’s more than I realize,” Budenholzer said. “There’s certainly no place for fans and, you know, whatever it is exactly that Drake is for the Toronto Raptors.”
