Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Here's another similar article with a little more to it. Supposedly this person actually went and saw Tony on Monday night. Interestingly, I can just picture him sitting there looking at her like she's crazy when she asks about whether he'll race Sprint cars again or not! lol I have a feeling he's stubborn and he is going to want to prove to everyone that this was "just an accident". Hopefully they will start to be innovators on safety issues for sprint cars. That would be good.

Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

I hope they will improve on the safety of the dirt racing cars. Too many killed and hurt lately. But that's what Tony loves to do, so I certainly didn't expect him to quit!

Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Most wont agree, but personally, I don't think it's a good idea for him to race these.
It's like how NBA players can't ride motorcycles, or most athletes are not to be in pick-up games. If they get hurt, it affects others. It's the same with Tony. Many people are affected when he's out of action. The team and all it's members make less money, the sponsors don't have the driver in the car that they signed up for, and the fans lose out too. It just doesn't make good business sense imo.

Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Tony's business!!! Dirt racers are real racers. If you don't get some enjoyment in life, that what fun is that. Tony's a heck of a dirt racer. That's why you race on Sunday's to play and enjoy yourself through the week. Go Smoke!!!!!!!!

Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Tony's insistence to continue racing sprint cars is his prerogative. It's not really up for the media or the fans to decide for him, the real blowback he'll have to deal with is if sponsors begin to grumble about it. It all gets a pretty big 'meh' from me though. In all the years of his extracirricular racing, this is really the first time he's been injured. I don't see it as a big deal moving forward.

Re: Stewart To Keep Racing Sprint Cars

Tony has been injured before (collarbone), but I think it is safe to safe this one was the most serious and he's not out of the woods yet. A lot depends on how well the surgeon was able to repair the break and how he does once rehab starts.
