Finished With NASCAR, Stewart’s Still Shifting Gears

One month ago, Tony Stewart was at the Daytona 500, casually conversing with NASCAR team owners, drivers and crews about his new level of involvement on the drag strip. And yet, the three-time Cup Series champion felt no temptation to make a return to NASCAR, even if it was for only one race. “I have zero interest in going and running the Daytona 500,” Stewart said matter-of-factly. If I go, it’s because I feel like I’ve got a shot to win the race,” Stewart clarified. I’m an OK spectator, but I’m not a great spectator for long periods of time,” Stewart said. During the first weekend of March, Stewart was officially a spectator no more. Stewart lost to Cody Krohn during the opening round of eliminations for the Division 2 race on March 5. I got everybody beat on the speed chart at Daytona, whether they won or not,” Stewart said.
