The world of truly custom Road Stars is definitely hotting up and there are some incredible machines out there. Just like the this one by Britt Custom Metrix who built an awesome bike for none other than the NASCAR ’05 Nextel Cup Champion, Tony Stewart! The bike was done to a Home Depot theme similar to the one sported by Tony’s awesome V8 that took him across the line for five wins in 2005. And just like those monster vehicles, there isn’t a lot of chrome on this bike!
SCOTT BRITT of Britt Motorsports chosen to build custom bike for SPEED Channel Driver of the Year, Tony Stewart
On February 15, 2006 during NASCAR Speed Week, 2005 Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart was named “2005 SPEED Channel Driver of the Year.” The Driver of the Year title is unique because it is the only award that encompasses all of the racing series in the United States. Tony Stewart’s accomplishments, including the 2005 Nextel Cup Championship, gave him the recognition deserved of being selected as the recipient of this prestigious award.
The award was a custom motorcycle built by Britt Motorsports in Wilmington, NC. Scott Britt presented the Yamaha Road Star powered custom to Tony Stewart in Daytona on February 15, 2006. “It was exciting to build the bike for Tony Stewart in our dealership,” said Scott Britt, owner of Britt Motorsports and Britt Custom Metrix. “This bike is our latest design and the template for a bike we’re building to show at Daytona Bike Week this year. I cannot express in words how proud I am of my staff and their efforts involved in completing this project.”
SPEED TV is so excited about the look of the bike built for Tony Stewart, they have contracted Britt Motorsports to build another custom for 2004 SPEED Channel Driver of the Year Greg Anderson, who was the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Champion sponsored by Summit Racing.
“It’s exciting for us to be involved with SPEED Channel’s Driver of the Year awards program,” says Scott Britt. “It’s always fun to watch the reaction of people when they realize the radical custom they are looking at is a Yamaha motorcycle.”
