There were many ups and downs to Tony Stewart’s 2016 season, but he ended the year with an average finish if 18.32, which put him in the front half of the pack about half the time.
With a 40-car field, Stewart finished in the top 20 15 times in 28 starts (.536). Depending on his salary cap at the time, he was occasionally a good value but with only eight top-10s (.286) he was not a great value often enough to make him a place-and-hold racer. Moreover, his average starting position of 14.75 meant that he often lost place-differential points in games that offered them. Nov 28 - 11:32 AM

Tony Stewart finished 22nd in his final NASCAR Cup race and in a 40-car field, that put him in the back half.

Stewart got off to a strong start and expected more. He said he just wanted to have fun, but lost two laps on the track and finished behind the midline point for the fourth time in the past five races.

Tony Stewart had his cell phone stolen at a carnival in Florida and said his "life is on that phone."

Stewart will have to restart his life a couple of days before his final race. His number will undoubtedly be activated before the race and he will have the welcome distraction of well-wishers.

Tony Stewart is scheduled to make his 618th and final NASCAR Cup start this week in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Stewart has earned 308 career top-10s (.498), but only eight of these have come in 2016 (.296). It has been a long, storied career that is coming to a natural close. Stewart won the first two races on this track when it was a flat, smaller replica of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but he proved his versatility in 2011 by winning on the progressively-banked version as well. He has not scored a top-15 in three races since.

After failing inspection for a third time at Texas Motor Speedway last week, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, and Martin Truex Jr. will miss 15 minutes of practice time at Phoenix International Raceway.

Edwards is already locked into the finale for the Chase Championship. Tony Stewart and Martin Truex Jr. are not in Chase contention, so this penalty will hurt Harvick the most. With five victories in his last six races on this track, he is probably not overly concerned about his baseline setup, however.

Tony Stewart’s last six attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks ended in two top-10 and three results of 12th or 16th.

That makes Stewart a driver to watch closely, especially if he qualifies among the leaders. His last three efforts on this track type came after he qualified 14th or better.

Based on his weekend activities, Tony Stewart should be a great dark horse contender this weekend.

Stewart qualified sixth, gradually improved his fastest laps in practice until he was second-best in the final session, and had the second- and third-quickest average speeds on Saturday. Barring any unforeseen problems, Stewart should be able to score a top-15.

Tony Stewart posted the second-fastest lap in the final practice session for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 96.020 mph.

Stewart has two top-10 finishes in his last four Martinsville starts, which makes him one of this week’s standout dark horses. Stewart qualified sixth for Sunday’s race and has been fast all weekend.

Tony Stewart has one Talladega SuperSpeedway victory and a remarkable six runner-up finishes in 34 starts on this track.

Most of those strong run came with Joe Gibbs Racing. In 14 races with his current team as an owner driver, he has only two top-10s. One of these came this May, but he is credited with a sixth-place for a race in which Ty Dillon was driving in relief.

Tony Stewart ran well early, faded in the middle, and surged at the end of the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to finish ninth.

Stewart snapped a seven-race streak of finishes outside the top 10. It came one week after he was eliminated from the playoffs, but he became a better fantasy value with a lowered salary cap.
Oct 9 - 7:10 PM

Tony Stewart had a shot at advancing to the second round of the Chase, but his 13th-place finish in Sunday’s Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway came up 11 points short.

Stewart was given a second chance by problems with both Chip Ganassi Racing teams. He needed just a little more help in the form of one other team finishing 25th or worse, however. Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch finished right behind him. Kevin Harvick also had mechanical problems, but his New Hampshire Motor Speedway victory gave him an automatic advance.

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.

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.
