Video of crash here: http://www.nascar.com/video/preview/pra ... index.html

Bummer!

Not totally Tony's fault. He was pushing Kurt and they came up fast on Truex. Tony couldn't see & Kurt had to move up the track to avoid hitting Truex. When he did, that left Tony pushing the left-rear of Kurt's car and that is what turned Kurt. Just a product of the 2-car-tango. :(

Re: Tony Crashes Daytona 500 Practice

It was Tonys spotters fault as the spotter is supposed to watch the field and tell the driver whats ahead of them etc, esp now that drivers cant talk to each other to warn them when in tandem. The spotter should have saw them pushing and coming up on the other car fast where the car being pushed was going to have to go high around it and Tony could have backed off as he cant see that pushing.. Apparently the spotter was sleeping. Its tough to have a good spotter as Ive heard lots of blame put on them for wrecks that should have been avoided and this was another one. My thoughts anyway. 8-)

Re: Tony Crashes Daytona 500 Practice

Uh Racer? Not trying to start any trouble with ya... just trying to ease a situation before it catches on fire.

Bob Jeffrey is Tony Stewart's NASCAR spotter and has been with Tony for a long time. ( Anyone know exactly how long? ) Tony loves Bob ... and Bob loves Tony ... in that manly team mate kind of way.

Bob even has his lovers & fans on here too.

Not sure if Bob was spotting today... but I'm trying to give you a friendly warning... don't put out blanket statements like that, when you don't know the facts.

Just trying to be nice, before the Bob lovers get a go atcha, for that stmt. :-)

Tony himself took the blame. But I think it is unfair to place blame on anyone. Kurt and Tony hooked up, ruex Jr moved up, Kurt made a move but since drivers can't talk to on another anymore and the spotters are limited to their driver, Tony didn't know and when Kurt moved up, Tony ws still on his bumper, got on his left rear and in racing if you hit someone's left rear they are going around. It happns. Kurt did nothing wrong, Truex Jr neither, same with Tony. It's plate racing.

Don't think other drivers think like you do...

Brad, Kurt Kyle and AJ all agreed it was just plate racing.
