Tony Stewart Recognized for his philanthropy ... The Internet Source for Motorsports News and Information: "DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Tony Stewart was recognized for his philanthropy by being named NASCAR�s 2004 USG Person of the Year.

The award, presented to Stewart Dec. 3 at the National Motorsports Press Association's Myers Brothers Breakfast in New York City, is designed to honor NASCAR drivers for their community service contributions and charitable efforts.

The annual award carried a $100,000 payment, which was to be split between the winning driver and his charity of choice. However, Stewart once again showcased his charitable compassion by donating the entire amount to Kyle and Pattie Petty�s Victory Junction Gang Camp, a facility for chronically ill children located in Randleman, N.C.
