Sirius NASCAR Radio host and one of the sport's most exciting and outspoken drivers, Tony Stewart, announced today the creation of the first annual 'Stewie Awards,' honoring the best, boldest and funniest moments of the 2007 NASCAR season.

Stewart and co-host Matt Yocum will announce the nominees in the 12 award categories on a future edition of Tony Stewart Live. Following the announcement of the nominees, fans who like to watch things go around in circles will have the opportunity to decide the winners by voting online at

The 'Stewies' will be awarded during a special live broadcast of Tony Stewart Live, on Sirius NASCAR Radio channel 128 on Thursday, November 29 (6:00 - 8:00 pm ET).

I’m actually thinking about starting my own award program here and calling it the “Buzzie Awards,” where we get together every year and vote on the most ludicrous press releases.
