Ivan "Ironman" Stewart (born 1945) is an off road racing driver.

Racing career

In 1973, Ivan was scheduled to co-drive in the Ensenada 300 in a Class 1-2 buggy. His co-driver broke his leg, so Stewart drove the car, and won the race. After some additional conquest, he joined the Toyota factory team in 1983 for Cal Wells at Precision Preparation Inc. He won a total of 82 races. He has won a record 17 races in Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group's (MTEG) stadium series, a record 17 Baja 500's, three Baja 1000's, and SCORE International events. He has won ten point championships, including four SCORE World championships and three MTEG championships. He is the only person so far to win overall including motorcycles while driving a four-wheel vehicle solo in the Baja 1000.

Stewart retired from racing in 2000. The Ironman continued to be instrumental in off road racing, becoming a founder in the ProTruck Racing Organization. Since then Toyota introduced the Toyota Tundra pickup truck and soon afterwards produced a very limited number of trucks as the Ivan Stewart Ironman edition. These trucks featured a special Ivan Stewart signature package with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) wheels, grille, interior, and supercharger.

Ivan Stewart also became known in the video game circuit, lending his name and his style of stadium racing to a series of games entitled "Super Off Road," and he wrote a book titled Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Ultimate Off-Road Adventure Guide (Motorbooks, 2007). He also appeared in the Live Action Video for Kids/Real Wheels video, "There Goes a Race Car."


Stewart was a 2006 inductee in the Off-road Motorsports Hall of Fame.

In 2009, Stewart was inducted into the San Diego Hall of Champions Breitbard Hall of Fame.
