Tony Stewart will be losing Office Depot as sponsor of his #14 Chevrolet after the 2012, noted by the AP via Yahoo! Sports. Office Depot had been in NASCAR going back to 2004 when it first sponsored Carl Edwards and moved to Stewart in 2009. This was the second big sponsor to tell Stewart-Haas Racing they will be leaving. Earlier in the year the US Army told them they would be bowing out of the sport off of Ryan Newman’s #39 Chevrolet. No mention if Mobil 1 would increase their sponsorship of Stewart or they would try to find a replacement for Office Depot. Office Depot might stay on in a very small role with the team, but that also has yet to be determined.
