Tony Stewart had quite a Thursday.

First, he announced he's getting back behind the wheel of the No. 14 at Richmond. Then, he was hit with a $35,000 fine from NASCAR for comments disparaging to the sport.

Apparently, Smoke ended his extremely eventful day with a Pearl Jam concert in Columbia, South Carolina ... hanging with lead singer Eddie Vedder.
