So What Happened To Tony?

Sun Mar 24, 2013 7:45 pm

Maybe some of you were listening to Tony's radio & can shed some light.

After the last restart where Joey blocked Tony, what happened to Tony's car? I didn't think it was damaged that bad from what looked like "light" contact. Why did he end up 22nd? :? He looked like he should have ended up with at least a top-ten.

The contact with Joey poked a small hole in the right front and is was going down. That is why he dropped like a rock.

What Tish said is exactly right......the scanners on Tony's car and radio connections were being hacked into so with all the static and over talk it was hard to hear what happened, but I did hear about the slow leak. I think Tony should have dumped him, but he was going to race him clean.....bet that never happens again! There isn't anyone in the garage who likes or respects Joey...even Sam Hornish on sports center wouldn't defend him....... I'm really liking Sammy :)

actually Sammy said he wasnt defending logano while his explanation was sugar coating it.

I heard Sam say he was asked why he wasn't defending his teammate and I don't remember exactly what he said but basically he didn't think Joey was right...

Hornish knows Joey wasnt right, but when he was trying to explain what happened he made sound like a racing deal. Still was cool that Hornish didnt agree with Joey, but the explanation was still damage control (they both race for Penske)

I also liked Sams reply. I thought for sure he was going to fawn all over JoeE but he didn't. Lagono might want to be careful as Tony is a friend of Penske and he just might be taken to school. As for the little girl remark I didn't take that as criticizing it's really to shake up someone. Most of the time it does.

I think there are more than a few drivers that would like to give Logano some instruction. I think there are a bunch that would like to educate him on how to handle the inside and outside wall by broadsiding the wall and hitting it dead on.

From what has been said around here TV, newspapers, etc. Joeys front splitter had worn off so that a sharp piece of metal was hanging from the front and cut Tony's tire and leaving him coping with a slow leak and a boiling erupting volcano of emotion! Joey..... you can run but you can't hide!

Come on out Joey, take your beating like a man...

Somehow "don't poke the bear" comes to mind...

Anybody have any updates today? I wonder if JD Gibbs tried to contact him and calm him down like he used to.

Joey really did "poke the bear" and a lot of cubs in the garage. Joey does need to go to school, with some help from drivers in the garage area. I'd like to be a fly on the wall for that "discussion".

I heard Tony say he thought he had a tire going down and that he was "enjoying the track position" when he was 22nd. I hope that time off, for everyone, will allow tempers to cool, but Tony will be Tony - that's why we love him. At least Nascar stayed out of it and there were no fines or penalties. Boys have at it is alive and well. I wonder if that covers the Motorhome lot?!!!!! We will see at Martinsville in 2 weeks.

Martinsvilleis not the track to get payback.
It's a short track and if retaliation is done there, there is a good chance of taking out more then your rival...JMO

Where do you propose payback, then? Texas in three weeks when they're 195+ into the turn? No, Stewart isn't Logano.
