Former NASCAR star Tony Stewart didn't have a stellar time in Minnesota this past weekend. 

On Friday night, a race-track in Jackson, Minnesota hosted the 48-year old racer for Tony Stewart Night. 

As Stewart was signing autographs, a heckler went a little too far and Stewart had enough.  Stewart punched the unidentified man in the face.


It wasn't a great night for the three-time NASCAR Cup champ.  TMZ reports the engine blew on his sprint car after just one lap. 

Authorities were not called to the racetrack, the incident was handled internally.
