Stuart Kirby (born May 9, 1981) is a race car driver.[1] He has driven in ARCA, the Busch Series, and the NEXTEL Cup Series.[1] A former apprentice funeral director for his family's funeral home, he drove the #51 Chevrolet owned by Competitive Edge Motorsports in 2005, but was released before the season could be concluded. He currently owns a Bruster's Ice Cream franchise in Bowling Green, KY and is still pursuing a career in racing.

Racing career[edit]

On October 7, 2001, Kirby made his Winston Cup Series debut at the UAW-GM Quality 500. Kirby was taken out early in a crash involving Todd Bodine and Ricky Craven. He raced for Jimmy Spencer in Busch and Trucks, and had a lot of success in ARCA Racing, where he got his first career pole driving a car with the American Boy Scouts logo.

In late 2005, Kirby was featured alongside his wife in MTV's "The Reality Show" during a segment titled, "'Til Death Do Us Part". As of then, Kirby was assisting his family as a funeral director in their funeral home. The show never even mentioned Kirby's racing career.

On August 28, 2009, Kirby made a comeback in his racing career after almost 4 years.[2] He raced in the ARCA RE/MAX Series race, qualifying 12th and finished in 11th place.[2]
