Their relationship has accelerated.

NASCAR great Tony Stewart is engaged to pro drag racer Leah Pruett.

“So excited to spend the rest of my life with a truly amazing woman,” Stewart announced on Instagram on Thursday night. “She’s motivated, hard working, funny as hell, and as dedicated to her sport as anyone I’ve ever known.”

Stewart, 49, proposed to Pruett, 32, this past weekend after a year of dating, much of which was spent together in quarantine, according to TMZ.

Stewart, a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champ and current team owner, posted a handful of pics of the newly engaged couple — including a close-up of his fiancée’s massive emerald-cut ring.

Pruett also shared the news on her Instagram page, calling the couple’s love “monumental.”

“He might run in circles, but is the straightest shooter and the salt of this earth… looking forward to a lifetime of sunrises and sunsets that the Lord has gifted us together,” Pruett wrote alongside photos of the lovebirds.

Both Stewart and Pruett ended their engagement posts with the words “Love you babe.”

Stewart was previously engaged to former Playboy Playmate Pennelope Jimenez back in 2017, but the pair never made it down the aisle. Pruett was married once before to Gary Pritchett. They split up in 2019.
