Tony Stewart is set for his final season in Sprint Cup as a driver-owner for Stewart-Haas Racing. Tributes similar to Jeff Gordon last year are sure to be at every track he races at, but one team will also honor the three-time champion in its own special way.

Joe Gibbs Racing, where Stewart won 33 races and two championships, started the retirement tour for Smoke with two shoutouts on Twitter. JGR plans to pay tribute to Stewart on the 20th of every month, starting in January.

The first #TonyTribute20 is a memorable one with the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed rookie in Victory Lane from 17 years ago.

So where will the next trip down memory lane take us for Stewart and Joe Gibbs Racing? We can only wait to find out next month on the Saturday before the Daytona 500. You know, the win Stewart wants the most before he rides off into the sunset in November.
