Tony Stewart Wins His First Race of the Year at Talladega

Here is a pretty good video from Bumpsnotes showing Tony Stewart winning the Talladega 500 today, after most of the Chase drivers have already gone to the garage.

This certainly was a typical race in Talladega, lots of wrecks, lots of lead changes, a record 31 in fact and a record 28 different leaders, and lots of speed. Jeff Gordon looked like he was going to have a good day until he started hanging back to avoid the big one, unfortunately he was collected in a little one that took him out for a few laps to make repairs, he did make it back out to pick up some more points, but, it looked as though his engine them gave out. Finishing 38th is better that last, but it looked like he might’ve been able to make it back into the 20′s had his engine not gone away.

Near the end, Carl Edwards was trying helping Greg Biffle to the front, causing him to spin out to the left, taking out Matt Kenseth and then, they took out Carl Edwards and a bunch of others. So, teammates helping each other out took each other out, should make for a good Monday morning meeting.

At the end, Tony forced Regan Smith, who was making a charge for the lead, below the yellow line, so we all thought that Regan would be allowed to make a move there, and he crossed the line before Tony. Nascar ruled that he could not advance his position, even though several drivers had said Nascar would allow it for this race, and penalized him with a drive through penalty, effectively moving him to the 18th position.

Several competitors, including Johnson, said they had heard that passes below the yellow line would be allowed within sight of the checkered flag. That notion originally stemmed from a ruling that allowed Johnny Benson to improve from third to second at the finish of the February 2007 Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona.

NASCAR, however, had the final say, and the sanctioning body’s position was clear-cut, though it did appear to contradict statements made by NASCAR spokespersons in the aftermath of the Daytona Truck race.

“You cannot improve your position any time you go below the yellow line,” NASCAR vice president of corporate communications Jim Hunter said. “In our judgment, he [Smith] improved his position, and the penalty for that is a pass-through, so he was moved back to the tail end of the longest line, or 18th position.

“At the drivers’ meeting, we clearly state that you cannot improve your position by going below the yellow line. We do not feel he was forced below the yellow line. We respect Regan’s view, but we made the call, we think it’s the right call and the finish is final.” Source: Stewart wins after NASCAR disallows Smith’s pass

Tony Stewart Shoving USAC Official

Not sure what happened at this [tag]USAC[/tag] race in Indy, but Tony was pretty upset about something. Of course, it doesn’t take much to get Tony upset, but the USAC officials should’ve ejected him right there, I would not take that from anyone, those officials have got more important stuff on their minds like safety and making sure the race is run fairly. If I was Nascar, I would be talking to him about it as well, being that he will be a car owner next year as well as a driver, he needs to know the lines not to cross right now, such as putting your hands on a low paid official, any official, in any way shape or form is not allowed.

Maybe a good punishment would be to park his driver as pushing and getting violent with any official should end your day.

Added: Just saw this on the Nascar section at AOL Fanhouse, Stewart has been fined $10,000 for the incident and Tony Stewart Racing was placed on probation for the rest of the USAC season.

Tony Stewart was fined $10,000 Monday for what the U.S. Auto Club deemed unsportsmanlike conduct during a midget race last week at O’Reilly Raceway Park. Tony Stewart Racing also was placed on probation for the remainder of the USAC season.

Stewart reportedly knocked a radio headset off the head of one USAC official and shoved another following a ruling Thursday involving Stewart’s car, driven by Tracy Hines. Stewart Fined $10,000 for Conduct

Michael McDowell Crash at Texas Motor Speedway

Sorry I haven’t posted much this year, I hate to give an opinion on something I didn’t get to see, but this is one hell of a crash. During qualifying today at Texas Motor Speedway, Michael McDowell hit the wall HARD and walked away from it, this one looked a LOT harder than Dale Earnhardt’s, I have no idea if it really was or not, but just looking at the video, it sure looks like it.

This delayed qualifying for almost an hour and a half, as they made repairs to the steel barrier. Michael made an impressive start last week, running up front near the end of the race, and now has probably the hardest looking hit in Nascar history, probably not how he wanted to start, but I bet it helped him gain a few fans.

Here’s what Michael had to say about it:

“I came off of [Turn 4] on that last lap and it just felt a little bit off,” McDowell said. “I went down into [Turn] 1 and I don’t know if it was the oil dry or something happened, but it was real unfortunate for those guys. I hate to make a lot of work for the guys back in the shop.

“That’s one of the worst wrecks I’ve seen, for sure, in a while and I’m not excited I had to participate in it.”

Seeing the accident on television replay, McDowell himself seemed awed and impressed by his escape — and used the word “mad” to describe his emotions while the crash was unfolding.

“I told the guys, ‘Man, this thing feels really tight. I’m going to run another lap,’” he said. “Then I got down in there and it just started to pull right on me. I tried to gather it up and as soon as I turned back to the right, the front tires hooked up and it started rolling down from there. I didn’t lose consciousness, so I felt every roll down the hill.

“I thank the guys back in the shop. They make these cars extremely safe. They spend the extra time padding everything. For me to walk away from that wreck, right there, is unbelievable.” Source: McDowell OK after near head-on crash in qualifying
