Tony Stewart will race chassis 14-707, which has a long career with its first start coming in 2012. It was also the car Stewart drove this June in Pocono when he finished 13th.
Stewart ran much stronger than that overall, however. He spent about 43 percent of the race in the top five and should have contended for at least a top-10. A late-race speeding penalty cost him track position late in the Pocono 400. Aug 1 - 7:11 PM

Tony Stewart lost one of his best opportunities to win a race last week in Indy. Complaining of a loose condition, he dropped from sixth on the grid to 17th at the checkers.

Pocono has traditionally been a strong track for him and he has another good chance to win at Watkins Glen International, but fantasy players will have a hard time ignoring the fact that he has not scored a top-five in 15 weeks. He finished fifth in the March running of the Auto Club 400.

In order to qualify for the Chase, Tony Stewart will almost certainly need to win a race during the regular season. He currently sits 19th in the standings, 22 behind the current cutoff for drivers who could potentially make the playoffs on points. The Crown Royal 400 provides him with an excellent opportunity.

Stewart currently has the longest active top-10 streak at Indy. He has finished that well in his last five starts as well as nine of his last 10. Two victories were earned in 2005 and 2007, which is complimented by a fourth last year. Equally important, Stewart’s victory in a 360 sprint car race this week will improve his spirits and outlook before a race that he has always enjoyed.

Tony Stewart will race a new chassis designated 14-827 this week. It has not seen race conditions, but performed exceptionally well in last December’s open test at Charlotte with teammate Kevin Harvick behind the wheel.

In that session, Harvick posted the fastest speed. Charlotte’s high banks provided a different set of circumstances than the flat corners it will face this week, but the team’s enthusiasm about the car echoes their feelings after Stewart returned to Victory Lane in a sprint car during the off week.

In his first attempt in a sprint car since last year’s injury that sidelined him for the end of the NASCAR season, Tony Stewart beat a field of 21 cars at Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn Mich.

Stewart has admitted that he is not 100%, but running these extracurricular races will actually go a long way to helping him improve in the Cup series. "I'm going to live my life," Stewart said of his crash. "It's nobody else's decision, but mine. I think there are a lot worse things I could be doing with my life than what I choose to do."

Tony Stewart has a reputation for heating up during the summer and early fall. Fantasy owners may have seen the first glimpse of that with his seventh-place finish in the Camping World RV Sales 301.

This was the first time since the Duck Commander 500 in April that Stewart was able to put together a complete race by qualifying and finishing among the top 10 in the same event. Notably, both the race at Texas and New Hampshire ended under a green-white-checkered flag. Sitting 19th in the standings, Stewart almost certainly needs a win to qualify for the Chase, so watch him closely at Watkins Glen.

Tony Stewart finished seventh in Sunday’s Camping World RV Sales 301, but still finds himself outside of Chase contention. He currently sits 19th in the points’ standings, 22 markers behind the current cutoff.

Stewart has built a reputation for surging during the summer, but he admitted to reporters this week that he is not 100% after last year’s injury. The next three weeks will showcase races on the flat tracks of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Pocono Raceway, and the road course of Watkins Glen International. He has been strong on these tracks, so his fans should not worry yet. Fantasy players will want to take a more cautious approach to starting him, however.

Tony Stewart finished second and first in New Hampshire’s two races of 2011 and hopes to have some of that same strength this year.

Remarkably, that was the second time he finished first and second at New Hampshire during a single season, having performed the feat already in 2005. He also finished first and second in back-to-back races at the end of 1999 and beginning of 2000. Unfortunately, he finished 26th in this race last year before missing the fall event due to injury, so he should be regarded only as a driver to watch.

This weekend's race will mark Tony Stewart’s 538th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start and his fourth at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta.

He has a best finish of 12th in three career Sprint Cup starts at Kentucky. His average start there is 18.7, his average finish is 21.3 and he has a lap completion rate of 95.5 percent. In the 2012 Kentucky race, Stewart had one of the fastest racecars. It didn’t matter, however, as ignition problems just 25 laps into the 267-lap race kept Stewart idle for 36 laps as his team replaced the throttle body. He avoided a dreaded DNF (Did Not Finish) by returning to the race and using it as a test session. He turned laps as fast as the leaders, but it went unnoticed because Stewart was so many laps down. He finished 32nd.-TSC
