Bugarewicz graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering (2004) and a Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering (2005).-True Speed Communication Nov 30 - 8:33 PM

Tony Stewart (#14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS) finished 29th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Stewart Haas Racing driver started 36th in the lineup and completed 265 laps of the 267-lap event. Stewart, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored three top-10s and closed out the season 28th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Tony Stewart has taken note of how Jeff Gordon ran in his final full season and that has added a sense of urgency to his 2016 campaign, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. Fantasy owners should expect significant changes to this team during the off-season.

A crew chief change was intimated during media day at Homestead, but the real worry for fantasy owners this week is how he will fare on Sunday. Stewart missed 2013 and finished last in this race last year, so it is difficult to imagine him showing major improvement on Sunday.

Tony Stewart earned his third top-10 finish of 2015 in the Goody's 500 a Martinsville Speedway. He officially started the race in 13th, but was forced to drop to the back of the field in a backup car after crashing in Saturday’s practice.

The season has not gone as Stewart wanted, but his strong run this week will go a long way to restoring some confidence and making him fantasy relevant in two weeks at Phoenix International Raceway.

Tony Stewart posted the slowest 10-lap average time in Saturday morning’s practice for the Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway. His top speed of 94.718 mph was 1.8 mph slower than the leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. His speed put him 34th on the grid among 39 drivers who recorded 10 or more consecutive laps.

Stewart has a great record at Martinsville and is more than capable of using strategy to get into the top 20, but that is going to be his high water mark.

Tony Stewart has shown signs of speed during practice for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte. His 15-lap average of 182.86 mph placed him seventh on the speed chart.

Speed in preliminaries has not really been a problem with Stewart. Mistakes in the pits, poor strategy decisions, and general bad luck have plagued this team all season and fantasy owners who start him Saturday night do so at their own risk.

In the past two years, Tony Stewart has missed races late in the season because of sprint car accidents and that has stalled his momentum. One of his accidents occurred in 2013 and caused him to miss the fall Dover International Speedway event, but the last time he was there before that, he scored his third win on this track.

Stewart has not been all that bad at Dover since, however. He finished seventh, 14th, and 16th in his most recent three races. Another top-20 would make him a reasonably good value.
Oct 3 - 10:27 AM

Tony Stewart has "announced that he will retire from the Sprint Cup Series after the 2016 season," according to NBC’s Nate Ryan. He is open to continue racing in support series after that date, but does not have any permanent plans.

Stewart’s results this season have been disappointing and that undoubtedly factored into his decision. With the pressure to perform off his shoulders and coming off last week’s 11th-place finish, he could be a solid value in the final eight races of the season.

Tony Stewart finished 11th in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and earned his best finish since he was ninth at Pocono Raceway eight weeks ago.

As with his Pocono finish, he gained a few positions at the end of the race when his competitors began running out of fuel. He has been raising fantasy owners’ expectations with solid qualification runs, but this was notably one of his worst efforts in time trials during the past two months. En route to his 11th-place finish, he earned 16 place-differential points.

Tony Stewart was third fastest in the first practice session for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway with a speed of 175.710 mph. He landed between teammates Kurt Busch (175.842) and Kevin Harvick (175.654).

When an organization shows consistent speed across all of their members, that is generally a good sign that the lead drivers will run well. Expect top-five battles from Busch and Harvick. Stewart should be able to challenge for a top-15.

Tony Stewart’s run of top-five starts this season came to an end at Bristol Motor Speedway. He failed to find any significant speed in qualification for the Irwin Tools Night Race and was forced to take a provisional to make the race.

After starting fifth or better in four consecutive races, Stewart will roll off the grid 40th. This is his second-worst start at Bristol. The last time he was at the back of the pack, he started 42nd in August 2011 before finishing 28th. It will be difficult to keep from getting lapped that far in the back.

Tony Stewart qualified fifth for Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400. That is his fourth consecutive top-five start in the NASCAR Cup series.

So far he has been unable to keep that momentum alive during the race. He was scored in ninth at the end of the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway, but that result was aided by failed fuel mileage gambles by other drivers.
Aug 15 - 12:48 AM

With one hour remaining in the first practice session for the Pure Michigan 400, Tony Stewart sat atop the leaderboard. His top speed was 194.610 mph.

Stewart has raised a lot of hopes with strong qualifications in recent weeks, but he has not been able to back that up with strong race day runs. Fuel mileage helped earn a ninth at Pocono Raceway two weeks ago, but it is difficult to recommend him for a fantasy NASCAR roster.

For the third straight week this season, Tony Stewart advanced to the final round of qualification. In fact, he posted his third straight top-five time trial effort and rolls off the grid third for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen.

Last week Stewart benefitted from several drivers’ failed fuel mileage gambits to finish among the top 10. His record on road courses is such that he should finally be able to contend for a single-digit result strictly on merit and he could be one of this week’s top dark horses—especially in salary cap games
Aug 8 - 8:30 PM

The family of Kevin Ward Jr. has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Tony Stewart for his part in the death of their son, according NBC Sports’ Dustin Long.

The suit alleges that Stewart behaved recklessly during a caution period in an Empire Sprint Series race last year at Canandaigua Speedway. Already front of mind, this suit will be an added distraction for a racer who missed the last two editions of the Cheez-it 355. Stewart was 10th in final practice this week, however, and should be considered a dark horse to finish among the top 10.
