Stewart shot himself in the foot this time making rookie type mistakes.

There's no way he can blame this one on Darian. Tony needs to get his game back on the race track made of asphalt.

I was speaking of past mistakes done by him where Darian gets thrown under the bus.

The ones where he overrules his crew chief and then him and some of his fans put the blame on Darian, like Darian should get down off the pitbox and run Tony down.

It amazes me how when it's Tony making the mistakes, some want to kiss his little boo boo away...but if it can be blamed on Darian, those same people want Darian's head on a silver platter. And if it's a pit crew member....BBQ the guy right here and now.

Smoke has to qualify better he can not come from the back of the pack WHY who knows.Darian had to get Tony to the front of the pack. So he took a gamble that would get Smoke up front.Hoping there would be a caution making the front runners pit. Well unfortunately the caution never happened. Plus Tony had the speeding penalty thats what killed him . It made him have to race wide open to get back up front plus him and Carl fought for 3rd place which really caused Tony to burn fuel . So who was really to blame Darians gamble that would get Tony the win IF they had been a caution. Or Tony making a Rookie mistake entering the pits to fast???? I really think it is up to the individual no 2 people are going to agree.My feeling is the pit penalty is what killed smoke chance for a top 5 finish.

Do you consider a helmet with a head in it debris????

<quoted text>Well, how about Jr. fans who pissed and moaned about his crew chief. No matter what Jr. did, it was always the crew chief's fault. It was never Jr.'s fault. This was done more with Jr.'s crew chief than Tony's cc.
Well Carolyn simply put, since I don't follow Jr...that's not my problem

Not for Tony, you're absolutely right. But, I think sometimes it depends on who benefits most from the caution before the debris magically appears.

Tony ran a good race and Darian had great strategy. And, we agree again, and Tony agrees also, that his mistake screwed the strategy. Even so, because he had to make up track position, he was only 1/2 lap short on fuel and they almost made it work! I'm optimistic the 14 car will be in VL not too far in the future.
