Tony Stewart has finished worse than his previous start in six consecutive races at Dover International Speedway.
He got off to a great start in June 2013 by winning the FedEx 400. He missed that fall’s race, and still no one knew what was coming when he finished seventh the following spring. Since then, his results have been 14th, 16th, 26th, and finally 34th this spring. He still has some room to fall, but without a substantial improvement he will not be a good value even if he beats this spring’s result. Sep 29 - 6:59 PM

Tony Stewart finished 23rd in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire and is still looking for his first top-15 of the 2016 Chase.

Tony Stewart came close at Chicagoland with a 16th. In 2005 after qualifying for that Chase he said this team was just taking up a spot better used by someone stronger; he won the championship. This year, he hoped to have the same late-season surge but is only one poor result away from being one of the first four out.

Chase contenders continue to dominate at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, this time taking 13 of the top 15 spots. Kyle Larson headed the list with Tony Stewart posting the 15th fastest lap.

The top of the charts will be dominated by Chase contenders so load up on them on the fantasy roster.

Tony Stewart posted only the 19th fastest single lap on the speed chart for the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Saturday morning’s practice. His fastest lap was 131.040 mph.

Stewart qualified 22nd and there is no reason to believe he is going to finish much better than 20th. As tight as the Chase field is, that is likely to seal his fate before the series rolls into Dover International Speedway next week.

All three of the Stewart-Haas Racing Chase contenders advanced to round two of qualification for the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire. None of them moved to the next level.

Kurt Busch in 13th with a lap of 134.359 mph came closest. Kevin Harvick qualified 19th at 133.717, with Tony Stewart 23rd at 132.328. Harvick went back out and his car simply would not grip through the corner. Stewart did not even attempt to take a late-session time.

Tony Stewart posted the third-slowest time among the Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Bad Boy 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a speed of 135.006 mph. The only two Chase drivers slower than him were Chris Buescher and Austin Dillon—who crashed near the end of that session.

Stewart and Buescher would seem to be the lowest hanging fruit in terms of drivers who will be eliminated before round two starts. Stewart has had some great New Hampshire runs including a second this spring. He had momentum on his side at the time, however, with is something he lacks this weekend.

Tony Stewart almost cracked the top 15 last week at Chicagoland Speedway, but settled for a 16th instead. That was the fifth straight race in which he failed to crack the top 15.

His previous four attempts all ended outside the top 20 and off the lead lap, so this was a slight reversal of fortune. He will need much better results in order to advance to the second round of the playoffs and will not be a good value while he searches.

Free Passes on lap 193 and 264 of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 gave Tony Stewart a fresh start. He changed tires on the final caution and made up one position on the lead lap drivers to finish 16th at Chicagoland Speedway. He slipped one position in the points’ standings and is currently listed 12th—one point ahead of Austin Dillon and teammate Kevin Harvick. The other Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kurt Busch is two points ahead.

Stewart is going to need some luck in the next two weeks as well if he wants to advance to the second round of the Chase. For most of the Chicagoland race, he was among the slowest four Chasers.

Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman were called to NASCAR’s trailer before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 weekend began at Chicagoland Speedway. Stewart and Newman stood side-by-side to answer reporters’ questions, told them they had put the episode behind them, and "now let us go race and worry about Chicago," Stewart said.

Not to downplay the sincerity of their emotions, but NASCAR rivalries have a way of reigniting as soon as drivers make contact on the track. Stewart has much more to lose in the next three races than Newman and should race with a lot of respect.

Tony Stewart got nudged out of the groove by Ryan Newman on lap 364 of the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. When he expressed his displeasure by running the No. 31 down the track, the two hooked together and crashed.

This would have been "just one of those racing incidents" if it had not collected six innocent bystanders in the process. Fantasy lineups can be impacted in a wide variety of ways.

Tony Stewart wrecked Brian Scott on lap 205 of the Bojangles' Southern 500 and was told to report to NASCAR’s hauler after the race. He later developed an overheating problem and retired from his final race at Darlington Raceway in 35th.

Despite appearances, Stewart told reporters that the contact was not intentional. Scott bore the brunt of the ‘mistake,’ however, and finished 39th.

Tony Stewart posted the fastest single lap in the Saturday morning practice for the Pure Michigan 400. His top speed of 202.122 mph was the first time this week cars went over 202 in a timed session.

The track was cool and had a lot of grip, but the conditions were not a good indication of what drivers will challenge on Sunday. Still, racers all faced the same conditions and Stewart’s speed is a positive for his handicap.

Tony Stewart finished seventh this June in the FireKeepers Casino 400 after starting third. That was his first top-10 finish in the five most recent races on this track type.

Because of injuries and tragedy, one has to go to the 2014 Auto Club 400 to find another top-10 on this track type. That was a fifth-place finish, which came on the heels of another fifth the previous fall at Michigan. Stewart struggled last week at Bristol, but he has run strong since that seventh-place result on this week’s track. He should be regarded as a potential top-10 finisher in the Pure Michigan 400.

Tony Stewart has earned five top-fives in the last seven races this season, but he will have to come a long way to back that up Saturday night in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. With a lap of 127.835 mph, he will roll off the grid 27th.

Stewart finished fourth at Bristol Motor Speedway in spring 2014 after starting 37th. He was sixth the next spring after starting 21st, so he can get another top-10. A top-five will realistically be a stretch.

Tony Stewart has made only three starts in the last six Bristol Motor Speedway races, but they have been good enough to give him the best three-year average. He has a 9.67 in those three starts in a field filled by dark horses.

Stewart will make his final start on this track, so he gets to go out on a high note. That is good news because two-thirds of the way through Bristol practice 1, he was well outside the top 20 on the speed chart.
