The Columbus, Indiana native (who just turned 38 last week) is living out the American Dream of a new and successful entrepreneurship. "You hope that you don't wake up tomorrow and all of a sudden realize that we're just getting ready to go to Daytona or something and it's all been a dream,'' said Smoke. Tony Stewart's runner-up showing at Dover has propelled him to become the first owner-driver to lead the championship standings since 1992, when the late Alan Kulwicki won the title in that season's last race. His 10-year tenure with the same team (Joe Gibbs), sponsor (Home Depot), and crew chief ( Greg Zipadell ) is a NASCAR record.
