WHY YOUR DRIVER WILL LOSE THE CHASE: TONY STEWART

 Nearly two decades have passed since an owner/driver took home the top NASCAR series title. Tony Stewart was in a position to do so after 26 races. He won’t be after 36 races because nobody is winning the 2009 Chase, especially not Tony Stewart. Here’s why: Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Jeff Gordon All three drivers led the point standings after 26 races. None of them took home the title the year they led the point standings after 26 races. There is a fair argument to be made ...

TONY STEWART HITS CREWMAN

It has not been a good season for crewmen who try to avoid being run over on pit road. A month ago Juan Pablo Montoya pelted a member of David Ragan's pit crew. On Saturday at Richmond Tony Stewart ran over Dwayne Moore, a tire carrier for David Reutimann. Luckily, Moore was up and fist-bumping in no time. I don't know what these crew guys eat for breakfast, but whatever it is, Carl Edwards could sure use some. Related links:Worst crashes of 2009JJ. Yeley crashRally car hits horseMan runs ont ...

STEWART WINS AT WATKINS GLEN

TONY STEWART CONTEST

UPDATE: Contest is now closed. Thanks to all those who entered. Winner will be named tomorrow! Tony Stewart is building a house. We don't know many details, but we do know this. It will be in Columbus, Ind., and it will be huge. Oftentimes large, prestigious houses have cool names like Monticello, Hearst Castle and, perhaps most famous of all, Delta House. We think Stewart's abode deserves a similar honor. That's where you come in. The folks at Armor All have given us two Complete Car ...

TONY STEWART REVERSE-MADDEN CURSE

A forum commenter far more perceptive than I am has discovered the Tony Stewart Reverse-Madden Curse. (Someone else discovered it. I named it.) As Madden fans know, any player who graces the cover of the popular video game franchise is destined to have his ankle sawed off by terrorists before season's end. Often, his career is never the same. The Madden Curse is similar to the Sports Illustrated cover jinx and the Campbell's Chunky Soup Curse, which recently claimed the likes of LaDainian Tomlin ...
