FACT - (8-27-14 @ 9:45 pm CST) - Jack Hewitt is returning to the seat of a sprint car...actually a silver crown car. The National Speed Sport News is reporting that Jack Hewitt will come out of retirement to compete in the USAC 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway on September 20. Hewitt has been retired since 2003.
Jack will reunite with longtime associates Team 6R, American Racer tires, and Parker Machinery to field a car for the silver crown portion of the 4 crown nationals. Even though Jack has been retired, he has continued to drive his custom made 2-seater sprint car, giving many the thrill of sprint car racing.
Jack Hewitt is the only guy to win the 4 crown nationals. Four feature wins in four different classes of cars, all on the same night. Many people credit Kyle Larson for winning the four crown nationsls but that was in three different classes of cars on the same night, he didn't get that fourth win...only Jack "Dewitt Hewitt" can claim that accomplishment.
