April 15, 2008 - Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart will host a special broadcast of his weekly SIRIUS NASCAR Radio show Tony Stewart Live from Graceland, the Memphis home of Elvis Presley.
Tony Stewart Live from Graceland will air Monday, May 12 (8:00-10:00 pm ET/7:00-9:00 pm CT) exclusively on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio, channel 128. Stewart and co-host Matt Yocum will host the show in front of a live audience, giving SIRIUS listeners from coast to coast a glimpse into the personal life of the King of Rock �n� Roll.
Before going on his SIRIUS NASCAR Radio show, Stewart will also perform as a guest DJ live on SIRIUS� Elvis Radio, where he will play a selection of his favorite Elvis songs. Elvis Radio, channel 13, is the world�s first and only officially authorized, commercial-free, Elvis all-the-time radio station. Elvis Radio broadcasts live from Graceland, airing music from the early years, the classics, the comebacks, rarities, live tracks and basically everything Elvis ever recorded -- exclusively on SIRIUS.
Elvis fans and NASCAR enthusiasts from around the world will have the opportunity to visit Graceland and hear Stewart host his show live. As part of the show, Stewart, who shares Elvis� love of cars, will talk extensively about the one-of-a-kind collection in the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum, which showcases more than 33 vehicles owned by Elvis including his famous Pink Cadillac, Harley Davidson motorcycles, the red MG he drove in the movie Blue Hawaii and more.
�I can�t sing and I can�t act, but I do like Elvis� music and I can collect cars,� said Stewart, who has more than 40 vehicles in his own collection. �Racing has afforded me opportunities to do a lot of things, one of which is having my own radio show on SIRIUS. And it just so happens that my radio show gets me behind the velvet ropes at Graceland, where I�ll also get the chance to spin some records on Elvis Radio. All in all, it�s a pretty good deal.�
Stewart is a two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion (2002, 2005), one of only 15 drivers in the history of NASCAR to win multiple Cup Series titles. In addition to his achievements on the NASCAR circuit, Stewart is the first and only driver to have won championships in stock cars, Indy cars and in USAC�s Midget, Sprint and Silver Crown divisions.
