lol that was a bonehead move... but you know it lit a fire under darian and their work improved after he was told he was gone at the end of the season(maybe that conversation included a come to hjesus meeting with Tony on how he really felt about things- aired the dirty laundry so to speak).... maybe once he knew he would not be back he stopped worrying about what the boss thought and just focused on the car set up his way.

bottom line maybe that conversation had to happen to invoke the change that turned their season around and got them their championship.Just widsh tony had handled it better ...darain did not get to enjoy the championship like he should have ...it looked awkward and uncomfortable. I think Tony should have been a bigger man and handled that better. Honestly have more respect for Darian than I do for Tony.

YOUR FINISHES HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE BOARD THE LAST SIX WEEKS, DO YOU FEEL THAT IT HAS BEEN AS INCONSISTENT AS THE NUMBERS LOOK?

No, we have been pretty inconsistent. We have had some really good runs and we have had some races that we are still scratching our heads about. We are working through different packages and trying to find the balance that I like. Steve (Addington, crew chief) and I are still just getting to a lot of these tracks for the first time. Its that growing pain of getting somewhere with a new guy.- Tony Stewart

I really think people expect to much considering its Steve A & Smokes first yr together. Plus they have made major changes to the car since Smokes last win.

He has never been good in the first half of the season. I don't start to worry until the last third.
