The “Ironman” Ivan Stewart was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America this week. The induction ceremony was held in Pontiac, Michigan. Stewart becomes only the second person in off-road motorsports to earn such an honor. Walker Evans was inducted in 2015.
Stewart has had a storied off-road career, racing for Cal Wells and the factory Toyota race team starting in the 1980’s. Stewart has been involved with TRD (Toyota Racing Development) for the last few decades. He has banked several dozen wins and championship across his career.
Stewart was originally selected to be inducted in 2020, but the pandemic forced the cancellation the ceremony last year.
