Tony Stewart has hopes to add a fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup title to his resume for 2012, but along with way added another award as he won the 2012 ESPY for “Best Driver” at the 20th annual ESPY Awards on ESPN Wednesday night.

The three-time and reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champ beat out four-time IZOD IndyCar Series champion Dario Franchitti, F1 champion Sebastian Vettel and NHRA champion Del Worsham.

“I am thrilled to win the ‘Best Driver’ award after what turned out to be a great NASCAR season last year. I was fortunate enough to be able to take the checkered flag when it mattered most,” said Stewart. “There were some great drivers and great champions in this category, so I cannot thank the NASCAR fans and everyone who voted enough for their unbelievable support.” MORE>>>
