Tony Stewart is one of the greatest NASCAR racers ever. We’d actually say that he is one of the greatest American race car drivers ever because he has been in sprint crs, Indy cars, and other stuff, not just stock cars. Stewart is a fearsome competitor and also has no problem speaking his mind. He’s traded blows, both physical and verbal with other race cars as well as NASCAR itself during his career, but his post race interview from Talladega last weekend is the stuff of legend.
Stewart, straight faced talks about how the fans got cheated out of seeing big wrecks, how the track should be made into a figure 8, how he feels that he lets the fans down every time they tow back to the shop without a couple hundred thousand dollars in junked up race cars, and he seems 100% genuine, while we all know he is just breaking balls.
NASCAR recently announced that they will not be fining Stewart as they did not believe the comments were “detrimental to stock car racing”, which is perfect because that means Tony succeeded in blatantly waving his middle fingers at NASCAR brass without getting busted. To us, this is the single greatest post race interview of all time.
Press play to watch Tony Stewart give a post race interview for the ages!
