He was just driving a little too hard a wrecked trying to get the lead from Keselowski (how did Keselowski become so good at Watkins Glen? His car was fast as ####). He says it helps him. He is getting older and wants to have more fun. Cup racing is his job. Dirt racing is his passion.
Sad thing is if he hadn't wrecked he might have won.

If you watched PRE race on ESPN you would know why Tony loves dirt racing .....he said some of the drivers relax on the beach, others exercise by running Triathlons to relax and Tony loves to race dirt tracks to relax and for exercise.....THAT'S OUR TONY!!!!!!!!.......... IT IS WHAT HE DOES AND WHO HE IS.....
wolfgang wrote:There was oil on the track and alot of drivers were complaining about it,Tony probly spun out in it as Kyle went completely off the track in it to pass BK the end of the race.Overall i thought the race was actual racing aside the oil slick,but it did add to the excitement.Ricky Craven opened mouth and inserted foot again on Speed Report saying it was out of Tonys character to spin out like that,evidently he didn't watch the race or wasn't aware of the oil.Ricky should just stick to idolizing Jimmy Johnson as he always does.
This is what racing use to be and bettween Ambrose,BK and Kyle and i didn't hear an interview with Kyle but neither Marcos or BK were crying about it.They thought it was fun and i sure as heck did to,congrads to them for being racers and even more so for Marcos for the win! BTW,Tony was very impressive too,i think the oil is what ruined his day,i'd of loved to see him race against BK to see how that would have turned out.

Granted, he should be able to do whatever he wants, but he seems to be playing catch-up all the time. Maybe he just likes to do things the hard way. He comes in, practices, then leaves to go dirt racing. He comes back, qualifies, then leaves to go dirt racing. He comes back and races. Every time he leaves he puts a ton of pressure on his team to try to get the car right by themselves. When he comes back to race, if everything isn't right with the car, he has to work that much harder. Maybe it's just me, but the older I get, the more I appreciate things getting easier, not harder. Granted, I have a few years on him
