Stewart-Haas Racing is an American professional stock car racing team that currently competes in the NASCAR Cup Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. The team is co-owned by three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart and Haas Automation founder Gene Haas. It was founded in 2002 as Haas CNC Racing after Haas, whose company was a sponsor of Hendrick Motorsports, elected to form his own team. In 2009, Stewart, who had been driving for Joe Gibbs Racing, made a deal with Haas to drive for the team and in return receive a 50% stake in it.

The team is based and headquartered in Kannapolis, North Carolina – roughly 10 miles (16 km) north of Charlotte Motor Speedway – alongside sister team and Formula One entrant Haas F1 Team, but the two teams are treated as separate bodies for legal reasons.

In the NASCAR Cup Series, Stewart-Haas Racing currently fields four Ford Mustang GT teams: the No. 4 for Kevin Harvick, the No. 10 for Aric Almirola, the No. 14 for Clint Bowyer, and the No. 41 for Cole Custer. In the Xfinity Series, the team currently fields the Ford Mustang full-time for Chase Briscoe. In the K&N Pro Series West, the team currently fields the No. 41 Ford part-time for Almirola. The Xfinity team is operated in partnership with Biagi-DenBeste Racing.

From its inception until 2016, the team ran with Chevrolet engines (except for 2003 when they ran with Pontiac) provided by Hendrick Motorsports. Beginning in 2017 the team began partnering with Roush-Yates Engines and switched to Ford engines.

The team has won in each of the three national touring divisions, joining Hendrick Motorsports, Richard Childress Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, and Roush Fenway Racing as the only teams to accomplish that feat.
