Mac Attack 7/25/12: NASCAR driver Tony Stewart joins us to talk about the responsibilities of being an owner as well as commenting on his current season and goals for the rest of the year.
He comments that there are great times and times when you think to yourself, “What was I thinking?” The championship chase with Carl last year was one of the most dramatic sports experiences for Stewart. Mac Attack asks if he would rather win again at the Brickyard or take the Daytona 500? Stewart has 2 wins at the Brickyard under his belt, but he still really wants that Daytona win.
He also says that the right now the Indy 500 is not in his future. “It’s just not in the cards for us right now,” Stewart says. The number 14 driver has a business relationship and friendship with Danica Patrick. Stewart says that he has confidence that she can make it in the stock cars because of her attitude, mind-set and drive.
Stewart took a few jabs at his buddy Dale Jr.’s after his last, and long overdue win. He commented that he was not at all being critical of his friend, and that he even sent Jr. a congratulations text after his race. “It was great to see him get that win. It was great to see that smile on his face,” Stewart said.
