Daytona Beach, FL (Sports Network) - Reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart has done some acting during the offseason.
Stewart, who captured his third Sprint Cup title last season, will appear on an upcoming episode of the ABC comedy 'Last Man Standing,' starring Tim Allen. The episode is scheduled to air on Tuesday at 8 p.m. (et).
"This is something that obviously is a little bit out of our comfort zone, because we're used to being in a uniform in a 3,400-pound stock car, so to come here and do TV is something that is pretty fun," Stewart said. "It's exciting to do something different and get out of that norm a little bit."
Stewart was on the set of the television show January 16-17 in Los Angeles. He will appear as himself on the episode entitled "Adrenaline."
Later this week, Sprint Cup teams return to Daytona International Speedway for the preseason Budweiser Shootout race and then qualifying for the February 26 season-opening Daytona 500.
Allen will serve as Grand Marshal for the March 11 Sprint Cup race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
