"Smoke" will clear


Smoke's talk about retirement after Sunday's race I think is humorous. He was only whining because Jr.'s popularity exceeds his and all the boo's from the crowd probably hurt his feelings. Can anyone imagine Tony Stewart being a full time shock jock? I do not have Sirius radio, but I can only imagine what's being said. Smoke's passion for racing rivals that of any driver. He's only being a little candy ass and his retirement from the wheel is silly. He said that he's waiting for enough money to retire on... come on Tony!! You have enough money for you and 20 other people to retire on, unless of course you want to buy a 100 million dollar island to hide in seclusion!!


Other news...Jeff Burton has received the Good Sportsman of the Year Award and Jr. is getting the Good Citizen of the Year Award

Smoke's a whiner...I'm a winer (vino)!

He can however, get up on that wheel better than 99% of the FranceCar drivers that vroom these days...

Hey, maybe Tony could "retire" and become the next American driver in formula one. That's one racing disipline he hasn't mastered. I can see it now, the Home Depot/Parmalat Renaut.

I think Tony is a little blue right now. Maybe if he could win some races he would feel better.

I hope that winning a race changes his outlook.

Last year a poll of the regular (week in week out) media types named Tony the best driver in NA$CAR.
Mark Martin calls him the "by far the best pure driver" in the sport.

He spins out, somebody else wrecks Jr. and the Jr. Groupies boo him. Why wouldn't he get discouraged? Throughout his career he has always said that he would rather be racing on the dirt at some short track but the money is in NA$CAR.
