When Tony Stewart failed to clear inspection Friday afternoon, it forced him to take a position based on owner points. He will roll off the grid 39th, which is the worst he has ever started at Atlanta.
His next-worst start came in 2001 when he rolled off the grid 35th. He blew an engine five laps from the end and finished 27th. Stewart also finished second once after starting 32nd, so all hope is not lost. Feb 27 - 9:53 PM

Tony Stewart made contact with the wall in Thursday night’s Duel in Daytona before finishing fourth. The team stayed at the track until midnight and returned at 7:00 am on Friday to massage the primary car back into shape.

Obviously they do not want to give up their seventh-place starting position, but more importantly, this is apparently their best car and best shot at winning the Daytona 500.

It took a while for Tony Stewart to find his rhythm after a tragic sprint car accident last August. He scored only one top-10 and a handful of top-15s in the final 12 races of the 2014 season.

Stewart will benefit by the off-season to a greater degree than any other driver in the field, but fantasy owners should recall that he is typically at his best during the summer and early fall. Restrictor-plate, superspeedways are often the exception to this rule, however, so he should be watched and considered at Daytona.

Tony Stewart has the best average running position and finish in the past nine years of the Sprint Unlimited. His average position is 6.8, but even then he manages to surge at the end to finish slightly worse than fifth.

The Unlimited is a flat out sprint race and this fits easily into Stewart’s wheelhouse, which makes him a great pick in any one-off games.

Tony Stewart, already the owner of the beloved Eldora Speedway and a World of Outlaws team that features series champion Donny Schatz and legend Steve Kinser, has acquired the All-Star Circuit of Champions from its former owner, Guy Webb.

Additionally, Stewart has reached separate terms with principal owners of the Renegade Sprint Series. As a result, the Renegade and All-Star drivers will unite under the All-Star banner in 2015 and compete in a 50-race schedule. It’s a sign that such passion still endures for Stewart despite his 2013 season-ending crash and his involvement last year in an accident that killed 20-year-old competitor Kevin Ward Jr.; a grand jury ultimately cleared Stewart of any charges from the incident.

For the first time in his 16-year career as a fulltime NASCAR driver, Tony Stewart failed to win a race during a season. He finished 43rd at Homestead.

Stewart’s best finishes this year were a pair of fourth on the short tracks of Martinsville and Bristol. He finished fifth at Auto Club this spring, but that was his only other top-five all season.

Tony Stewart has one more shot to extend his winning streak to 16 consecutive seasons, but he will have his work cut out for him after starting 28th.

Stewart has also struggled in practice. He posted only the 32nd-fastest time on Friday and was mid-pack in 26th midway through Saturday morning. It is difficult to make him a favorite even to finish among the top 10.

Tony Stewart had one of the fastest laps in Friday’s practice session, but he failed to back that up in qualification and rolls off the Quicken Loans 500k grid 29th. He was back near the top of the leaderboard in Saturday’s morning session with another top-10 time.

That describes Stewart’s overall weekend lately. He surges and wanes at various points in the weekend and it is difficult to think of him as being one of this week’s favorites. Stewart could be a strong dark horse and differentiator, however, for players who are willing to take a risk.

Tony Stewart set the new track record at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 200.111 mph. He posted that time in the second of three rounds of time trials.

Stewart could not quite back up his time in the third and final round that sets the pole for Sunday’s race, but he was fast enough to start sixth. Stewart won the pole for the spring Duck Commander 500 on this track and finished 10th, so he is one of this week’s top choices to finish in the top 10 again.

Tony Stewart earned his first top-10 since returning to the cockpit after the tragic events of the summer. He finished fourth in the Goody's 500 at Martinsville and now sets his sights on Victory Lane in one of the final three races to extend a streak of winning in each of 16 consecutive seasons.

There is a fairly significant difference between finishing in the top five and winning, but Stewart is certainly capable if the team gets his car right. His last victory came 39 races ago in the summer 2013 Dover FedEx 400.

NASCAR has assessed behavioral penalties to drivers Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart for their involvement in post-race incidents on Oct. 11 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Keselowski has been fined $50,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating: Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in post-race incidents. Stewart has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating: Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in a post-race incident.-NASCAR.com

The Grand Jury determining whether criminal charges were appropriate in the accident involving Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward Jr. that resulted in Ward’s death at Canandaigua Speedway has returned a no bill decision. "The grand jury has decided there is no basis to charge Tony Stewart with a crime," said District Attorney Michael Tantillo in a televised press conference.

Stewart will not face criminal charges and this matter should be concluded, which will allow him to focus on racing.

Tony Stewart has earned only one top-15 and no top-10s since returning to the cockpit of the No. 14 Chevrolet. He finished seventh in the spring FedEx 400 and won the 2012 edition of that race, so the statistics are in his favor.

Stewart has not only finished modestly since returning, he has not run very well in any of the past three races. He showed promise in his first effort back at Atlanta, but was caught up in a crash. That makes him a difficult fantasy pick this week for the AAA 400.

Tony Stewart spun out of turn four with 15 seconds remaining in practice for the Sylvania 300. He did not make contact with the wall and was able to drive back to the garage on flat tires.

After posting one of the slowest 10-lap averages in Saturday morning’s session, that is not how he wanted to end the day. He remains questionable as a fantasy pick for Sunday’s race.

Tony Stewart posted the 26th-quickest, 10-lap average among 27 drivers who ran that long in Saturday morning’s practice session.

That put Stewart in the ballpark with Michael Annett, Landon Cassill, and Alex Bowman. Stewart’s status as even a dark horse for the Sylvania 300 must be called into question.
