Geeze is this Golf? Hell no, so shut your pie hole and use the only body part God blessed you with - your foot. If you can't find it, look in your mouth, which is located on your head. Can't find that? Look up your @$$ !!!
Last week it was Gordon whining, now it is Tony... No I'm not a JR fan, but at least he knows where to point his frustration.
I wish folks could watch and learn from Mark Martin... that's class.

Why wouldn't he? Remember Kyle Busch after winning the first car of tomorrow race at Bristol slamming the Car of Tomorrow.
He wasn't the only one complaining, A ton of drivers are. He is simply voicing his opinion very strongly because it's Tony Stewart. That guy will always tell people how he feels about something. He doesn't care what people think.
I LOVE IT!
i agree tony is a whiner, but mark with class, now you are reaching, ive seen him looking at a 6 yr old comming towards him for a autograph and turn and walk away from her with his hands in the air like why is this child here!!! mark needs to retire and just go away,

The general consensus here seems to be Tony Stewart was whinning about the tires at Atlanta and had he won he would not have slammed Goodyear at race end.. You appearently do not know Tony Stewart!! Tony's interviews would have lasted another minute or two had he won which would have added at least 45-50 seconds to his rant on the subject. Tony would also have been a guest speaker on NASCAR victory lane wherein Kenny Wallace and Jimmy Spencer (former cup drivers.) would have fanned the flames of Tony's ire, then we would have heard the ENTIRE story on why Goodyear sucks.. Hell, I like Goodyear tires.. I do not however drive them into 90 degree corners at 200 mph.. That could possibly change my opinion of the Goodyear rubber company! I believe in competition, (bring Hoosier, Firestone, hell even Yokohama to the series.) NASCAR believes in money.. big wads of money!! (Goodyear is not leaving NASCAR anytime soon.)
after reading all replies on this subject i agree with most.
I am a tony fan 1st and foremost. i'll defend any of his comments when he's right and tell anyone when i disagree with what he said. this is one of those times when i agree. the tire package was junk. yes goodyear pulled out of other series so they could focus on nascar. then they should know the track and have a good info for the track. but let's also remember these are new car designs and haven't run on several tracks so it could be a guessing game. several drivers were asking during the week at the tire testing at darlington about tony's comment.
gordon and i believe edwards were there and they agreed tony was right in what he said they said they would not gone about it the same way. but like several have said... that's the way tony is.. he says what's on is mind and doesn't give a rats a** what anyone else thinks.

things happen when people speak up. There are haters yes; but regardless of whether anyone likes what is said or not action is usually taken when IMPORTANT people talk. It is not fair but that is how it is, Yeley had tires problems all day and NASCAR knew about it and others that aren't or haven't been at the top don't seem to matter much unless they all unite. but you get a champion or JR to speak up and changes come to fix things so like it or not the Changes will help the whole series. Thanks Smoke
Oh By the way don't you think Goodyear could have brought 2 different tires for the Nationwide and cup series. I mean the cars aren't the same, the weight is not the same why assume both will run the same. Complaining about costs as the reason. what a BS excuse... The tires have to be bought by the teams and Everyone HAS to HAve Tires there.
Thanks for all your answers, DaGoat. The more I read these message boards the more I see the difference between boys who don't listen but rant on about a driver's comments and their body parts and men who actually answer to the point at hand. Your answers are always on the point and very informative. Actually, myself, I just love to hear Tony speak his mind. These guys say he's whining but they are not the guy going around the track at those speeds trying to hold on to a car that is not holding on to the track. It's real easy to sit at home on your couch and judge the guy actually doing the driving.
well said chevy lover...
for once gordon DOES makes a good point... and stewart is just a cry baby, they used the same tires in the nationwide series and they got not ONE complaint, these guys are professionals and their whining more about the young guns... and the thing that gets me most is stewart finished 2nd and hes complainin'... the guy is jus ridiculous

Hey Rob.. I don't know if you have noticed or not, there are two different types of stockcars in the two (Nationwide & Sprint Cup) series. The COT (Sprint Cup) is a top heavy car with a different roll rate in the center balance of the car (cross wedge). This creates a premium on grip in the front end (to be more precise the right front) of the vehicle. The Nationwide series runs the old style car with a lower center of balance which is adjustable in three areas. Goodyear hasn't figured out there are two types of stockcars in these two series either so don't take it personal, ok?
Last week it was Gordon whining?
Because he thinks there should be SAFER barriers on the inside walls? Thats not whining, that's common sense. All tracks should have that except for Bristol and Martinsville. I don't think they are needed there.
Guess you think Jeff Burton was whining after Earnhardt died and called for head and neck restraints to be mandatory.

The way Tony and Jeff G both went about it was all wrong. Take it behind the scenes and work it out that way. To call out Bruton and Goodyear was just grandstanding. Have some class is all I'm saying.
It was said that it took Dale's death to make the change to better protect their heads, but personally I think the full face helmet would have saved him without the HANS device.
sure...but it was said they changed the tire due to to much speed...over 200 miles an hour...come on its racing there is no to much speed...the other tires were said to make the car stick better two...me myself i would want fast tires that stay on track and if the blow so be it...i mean with the cations they had it would have been the same to throw on the old tires...and hell if you were behind the wheel i think you would want whatever mad you drive the best...if not whats the point in any adjustments of the car...drive it like it is...just keep putting tires on it...cant turn...o well...heres some tires...cant get in the gas because your loose....o well heres some tires...i just think they should make a tire...let them test it...then leave it the hell alone...
