He puts on a show for the cameras, he is two-faced, selfish, just thinks of himself. watch & see the off season , he will not be home with family . he will take biking trips, vacations with friends to other countries. he is only home with family 2-3 days a week. his ego was so big, he had to run full schedules in NW & Sprint. his wife needed him at home but she had to depend on her family to help her. very seldon is she at the track with him. she loves the money & part time husband, works for her. most of the garage people hate him. he does not have many racing friends. big horse teeth, egoistial person he is.
Yes, I have first hand knowledge of this.

I at this time feel he is putting on a front for the fans--he since he lost is probably crying and smashing things to relieve his anger. He is also wants to rewrite the rules to make hiself look better

Yep, he is a showy person. morning paper states he is always concerned about his image to people. Oh yeah, he cried & smashed things. Another thing that is irrating, he is always going up to the annoucers booth & kissing their azzes. I am so sick of Jarrett & D Waltrip cheering for him. what you see in Tony, that is the real Tony. we may not always some ways, but he is real.

Before the trophy presentation Tony was holding Darrien's son and talking with him when Mike Helton, holding the trophy kicked Tony in the butt with no response, so he shifted the trophy to one arm and tapped Tony on the shoulder. Still no response so Helton made the comment that Tony was talking to someone who actually understands him. Only after Tony was finished interacting with the young boy did he turn his attention to Helton. That is being your own man. Edwards on the other hand would have been kissing Helton up one side and down the other.

Carl Edwards... If you can watch the Homestead Race on ESPN, you'll see & hear the broadcasters talking about alot of drivers let Tony Stewart pass them after Tony was in pit lane getting his grill repaired after getting a hole in it from I think Kurt Busch's transmission breaking apart. Tony was in 40th place when the drivers were letting him pass them early in the race. And yes, NASCAR did tell the other drivers to let Carl & Tony race for the Chase Championship, but that was with about 20 laps left in the race not all 267 laps. This was still a NASCAR Race, NOT a 2 person Race, even tho only Carl & Tony could win the Chase Cup.
