I didn't mean to sound like I was bashing Tony, and FYI My arm is not long enough for his success. Logano has gotten better the last few years. What makes me think that Stewart will have a mental meltdown is just the way he acts when things don't go his way on the track. Kenseth is a true professional...when the race is over, he leaves it all on the track.
Then you have nothing to worry about. Tony wears his emotions on his sleeve, he always has. He sometimes is impulsive and loses self-control. I don't always agree with his language or actions, but he often expresses the same point the fans would like to get across. It's a part of the fire that drives him to try and be the best, and he usually succeeds.

This quite possibly is the worst season of his professional career and he is understandably frustrated. His fans know you can't ever count him out.

I agree that Matt has an entirely different personality and driving style. Despite what occurs on the track, he is able to maintain his composure and delivers his message very tactfully. How could anyone not like and respect him?

Does McClure still have 4?
They were my favorite, but the times passed them many years ago...
My first experience with Nascar was in 2000, and I don't recall McClure or even the #4 very well. It was fun to research though. A lot of big names have driven that number - Ernie Irvan, Mark Martin, Sterling Marlin, Jimmy Spencer, Ward Burton, Kasey Kahne and so many more. Looks like the last time it was entered in a Cup race was 2011, so whoever owns it might have it up for grabs?

The good thing is when I was trying to find out what number KH might drive with SHR, the #39 wasn't mentioned!:)

He is definetaly not going to have a break down. Every champion athlete has experienced a rough stretch. It happens. His teams a little behind with this new car.
, but he will get there. He's got many wins and title runs left him.
