Depends on how well he can sell his package AND, what's in it he is offering me. Afterall it is my precious time, and my dime. So first, I need the package and then I'll open it up and give it some time. You know play with it alittle and then go from there. If I like it there is no baring any false witness with me. Everyone Knows, and proud to play with it.
Make no mistake though - I love Zippy and that crew for all the wonderful entertainment they brought me through the years. That is a package I keep close to heart, and always will. So eyes wide open - next years it's here we go (again). Another few chapters he writes, and we get to read. Hope he makes it intersting -

He's in perfect machinary now and can't win, why would I follow him? It's over for him. He'll end up like Kyle Petty racing until he looks so bad people make fun of him.

Perfect machinery, sure. But he's had some bad luck lately so we'll see won't we. Can't quite give up on him yet.

Perhaps Tony really won't care if a few of the so called fans, fall off the wagon when it hits a bump! Opps don"t let the lead horse kick on the way out!

gosh, let me see, why has Tony not won yet this season? does anyone remember the bad luck that took several wins away? that has not a thing to do with machinery.. geesh.. Zippy said that this car today was junk when the race started, they adjusted it all day long and Tony drove it really well,,., Tony is a GREAT driver... he likes to win by racing,,, and that is admirable since if it wasn't Kyle or Carl, it was a strategic win and that kind SUCKS!!!
I will follow Tony and if he does not get the press he deserves as a new team owner, I hope he makes his own headlines so we continue to get enough of him!

If someone is a Tony Stewart fan, why wouldn't they follow him? I followed him in dirt, IRL and now NASCAR. Why end it all now?

That's right!!!!!!!!! True fans follow no matter what. Come on there are Bobby Labonte fans out there, Kyle Petty fans. These guys don't win all of the time or at all but it's about the racing and the driver, not about the win count.

I'm a Tony Stewart fan, not a JGR fan. Racing teams aren't like baseball or football teams.

when good, you never put it down. It's everyday, you can't get enough of it. What can one says. He has been absoultely wonderful to watch all these years. A wonderful escape into entertainment, and his race for win will be no different come next year. He loves racing. So do I. When it's something good, the desire to shout it out. Oh Tony....(words on some dumb screen) just comes easy. But no doubt, the pressures for him are going to mount. So I'll wait and see if tony with the new hat can still bring it. That's all I'm saying.

No playing with loaded packages, bombs or explosives here.

FYI: comment made me smile - thank you sugarplum. from a Plumb picker. Here's your yankee dime - take it!

Hell yes! Always and forever a Tony Stewart fan, baby!!!

I don't care what he drives, or who he drives it for, he's my man!:D

I mean, I'm 100% chevy girl, and I had to cheer for a Toyota... I've stuck with him all this time(since his rookie season), SOOO I'm in it for the LONG haul.

And I don't feel like, you can claim to have EVER been his fan... if you feel otherwise. JMO.

Like Susie said, I'm a Tony Stewart fan, not a JGR fan. Doesn't really matter to me which team he's on. And hey, I like the number 14, and I look horrible in orange anyway, LOL!
