We're all frustrated. Admittedly it isn't much fun to watch the race right now knowing that he is going to have a long day. Honestly I thought Texas might be the start of a turnaround, but I was obviously way off target. But I'm not thinking about changing drivers, not thinking about finding another way to spend my time. I'm thinking about how gratifying it's going to be once they get this deal turned around. This is the toughest slump I can recall of Tony's Cup career in terms of being uncompetitive, but I'm staying the course and I know the rest of you are too. It's easy to pull for him when he's winning and showing that he's the best in the business, but the real Tony Stewart fans are the ones that stand with our guy when things aren't going well on and/or off the track.
A couple years ago, during the run to that amazing third title, the battle cry "I'm with Smoke" was born. Well now's the time to stand up and say it loudly and proudly and let him and the team know that you're with them 100%. Hopefully he can still see us cheering in the grandstand and knows we're still pulling for him at home.
