Stewart said after spending 38 of 52 weeks a year on the road it will be nice to be able to retreat to a place like the Sheridan resort and be able to hang out with friends and relax.

The resort is located between Bristol, Richmond and Martinsville speedways, which will allow NASCAR fans to stay at the resort during race weekends.
