Tony Starting 4th!

He was at the top for awhile byt i had a feeling the 18 was going to be hard to beat with only one lap on their tires. The 48 was pretty good as well. The 11 just beat Tony by one one-thousandth! But still a great effort by Tony, Chad and the whole 14 team.

Feeling good about this race.....I don't sense Tony being in any wrecks so he can put that pedal to the medal and go get it done! Looking forward to race day. :D

Re: Tony Starting 4th!

Here is a Q & A from Tony on Loudon and why he loves the track!!!.....I wish for him the very best of LUCK ......... last week and the fact he had such a good car........Here's hoping the tide has changed...... Go getum TONY!!!!!! A Lobster dinner is waiting... :D :D


TONY STEWART, Driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing:
What do you like about New Hampshire?
“There’s nothing trick or fancy about it. It’s just a fun track. It just seems like it’s always been a fun driver’s track. Your car has to work well there, but when you get to racing guys – you’re trying to outbreak them, trying to get your car to turn and you struggle for forward bite. It’s just got a little bit of everything the drivers look for to have a good race.” 
Because New Hampshire is a difficult racetrack, are some drivers beat before they even make a practice lap because they have a negative outlook about the racetrack?
“It certainly doesn’t help if someone has a bad attitude going in there. It kind of puts a strike against you, but I’m not going to say that you’re already beat. There are tracks that I’ve been to that weren’t my favorite tracks, but I still found a way to win there. You’ve just got to stay focused and work hard to find what it takes to be good.”
Explain a lap around New Hampshire.
“It’s a big motor deal. With the corners being so tight, you’ve got to put a lot of gear in the car to get it up off the corner. Forward bite is always an issue there too, so it’s hard to get up off the corners. Then you’ve got long straightaways where you can kind of relax a little bit. Coming into the corners, you use a lot of brake, and it’s hard to not only get the car stopped, but to get it to turn. Then you go through that challenge all over again.” 
What makes New Hampshire unique?
“It just has long, sweeping corners. The corners in comparison to where we normally race, we’re used to having a lot of banking, but New Hampshire is pretty flat. It’s one of those tracks where you’re either fighting entry-loose, entry-exit and nice in the center, or you’re fighting tight in the center and you’re good on entry and good on exit. It’s a juggling act trying to get the car balanced for all three sections of the corner.”
Is New Hampshire a good place to race?
“Obviously, I like it because I’ve had success there. But at the same time, it’s a tough track to pass on. You can be a couple of tenths faster than a guy, but it still takes you 20 laps to get by him. There are other tracks on the circuit where it’s hard to pass, but we still go out and put on good shows there, too. Every race at Loudon seems to be a pretty good race. So, I like it. I enjoy racing there even though it is hard to pass. But when you’ve got a good car, it’s always fun to race.”
While you’ve won at New Hampshire, you’ve also had races where you’ve struggled. How can one race weekend turn out great and another turn into one you’d rather forget?
“If you miss on something, it can be a miserable day. It seems like you don’t see but three or four guys during the day that really hit it. That’s what makes a day there miserable when you miss. It’s just a matter of keeping a well-balanced car all day. And it seems like you can have bad track position, but if you have a car that drives well, you can drive your way to the front.”

Re: Tony Starting 4th!

Without Googling, isn't this the best starting position he's had this season?

No, it's second best....he won the pole in Texas this year


FORT WORTH — Tony Stewart captured the pole position Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway, earning the top spot in Sprint Cup qualifying for the first time in nearly 18 months.

I'm not sure if it's the sunshine or just old age creeping in.
