I'm glad to see Tony is having so much fun doing all of this extra racing but there's a couple quotes in this article that concern me.

“It’s kind of nice being the boss because I don’t have to ask permission to go dirt racing,” Stewart said.“I can just tell them I’m going. I skipped about three competition meetings in a row to go dirt racing.”

If he's missing competition meetings what kind of message is that sending to Ryan, Darian and the rest of the guys? With Ryan struggling to get into the Chase how committed to helping him is he?

“I never really got to run winged sprint cars growing up and now we’ve already run eight or nine winged sprint-car races this year,” Stewart said.“Sometimes I wonder if I want a career change. I like my Sunday job, but I really like this winged stuff.”

Was this comment made just because he was having so much fun in the winged sprint car or is he serious about a possible career change? Is he sick of the BS in nascar and getting ready to retire?

I'm not trying to stir up anything, just throwing this out there for discussion to see if anybody else read it the same way as me. Besides it's been pretty quiet here.

Maybe so ..Tony has always said he would rather race on dirt it just is not as lucrative $$$$$ as nascar. If dirt paid the way nascar does my guess is he would not be in Nascar. He seems alot happier on dirt.
oh please

He doesn't give a crap about NASCAR. He is only in it for the money. He's never denied that. Not sure he likes anything about NASCAR esp the fans.
. Sprint races give him the oopurtnity to spend time with his girlfriend, JZ. Isn't he going to Iowa for the Nationals w/ JZ to? Guess he'll be missing competetion mtg this week too. LOL

I wouldn't say that he doesn't give a crap about NASCAR although I do believe he's happier on dirt and that's where he'll end his career. I'm just surprised that he would blow off his Cup commitments to his team by skipping meetings just to "go play". It's only year 2 as an owner and I thought he'd be more dedicated to it for longer than that.
