It all boils down to experience. Anyone with 30 years in racing should do well in top equipment. In mediocre equipment that wasn't the case.

it all boils down to the fact that Mark stays in shape... and NASCAR does not take a toll on the human body like other sports do... but now that Mark has stuck around so long, I am glad Tony Stewart can drive NASCAR until he is as old as Red Farmer (if he wants to that is)!!

I have to agree in DEI equipment he didn't win 4 races but all the drivers at Hendrick should be winning and add Ryan Newman to the list.

its a great test case. mark is screwing everything up (starightening it out actually) once and for all. the only way to truly compare drivers talent is either drop them into IROC cars... mm dominates... or trade teams.

mark is showing that jeff and jimmie are overrated and mm has always been underrated. funny so many people think mark has been overrated, something i always have said is the opposite of the truth.

stewart looks good in hendrick equipment. newman proves to be a level lower than mm and fat tony. jeff and jimmie are on the same level, but they have been on some damned pedestal too long. they are not better than mm and fat tony.
