For the second straight week, Tony Stewart will line up among the top five on one of NASCAR’s flat tracks. He qualified fifth for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway.
Last week he failed to make good on the promise of a fourth-place start when he finished 28th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Often teams experience success in qualification before they turn their fortune around in race trim. This could be the first signs that Stewart is improving the program at the No. 14.

Tony Stewart posted the fastest single lap in the first session of time trials, but he slipped to fourth in the second round and he will start on the outside of row two for the Crown Royal Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That is his best qualification effort so far in a season filled with disappointments.

One would have thought he won the pole by his attitude, however. If he can score a top-10 his confidence will begin to be restored, but that is far from a certainty. In four previous top-10 starts this year, his best finish was a 12th on the road course of Sonoma Raceway.

Tony Stewart spun off of turn two at about the 35 minute mark and hit the inside wall. He will be forced to roll out a backup car.

Stewart reported that he simply got loose and could not catch the car. He failed to crack the top 10 in either Pocono race last year, but he came relatively close with a 13th in the spring. Stewart cannot be evaluated until Saturday’s practice sessions.

Tony Stewart swept the top-five in 2012 at Pocono Raceway and the top-10 the following season, but last year he finished outside that mark in both races, which leaves fantasy owners questioning if the 2014 results were an anomaly or a change in direction.

Stewart has not performed consistently well this season, so there is very little reason to believe he is going to crack the top 10 in the Axalta 400 at Pocono Raceway. He will only be a good value if he qualifies badly enough to earn place differential points.
Jun 3 - 9:13 AM

Tony Stewart has finished 34th or worse in his last five restrictor-plate, superspeedway races. Three of these ended behind the wall with crash damage.

Notably, Stewart’s most recent finish before that negative streak was a second in the 2013 Coke Zero 400. He won the previous year’s edition of that race, but finished outside the top 20 in three events separating those strong runs. The balance is not in his favor this week.

Tony Stewart earned his first top-10 of the season and only his second top-15 by surviving the Food City 500 and finishing sixth.

Stewart’s accomplishment did not come without a little drama. He got together with Kasey Kahne on lap 484 and triggered a five-car accident. He survived while the remaining drivers sustained heavy damage. Stewart gets to carry his momentum forward to Richmond—which is a track that has been kind to him in the past.

Tony Stewart slapped the wall early in the second practice session for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. The damage was probably not severe enough to give up his 21st-place qualification effort.

Stewart was one of many drivers who were much too loose to race. He still has at least one more practice session to get it right, but is looking like a risky fantasy proposition.
Apr 18 - 8:43 AM

Tony Stewart failed to finish on the lead lap in his first four attempts of 2015, but he is beginning to show signs of improvement. He went the complete distance at both Auto Club and Martinsville in his latest two starts.

Unfortunately, Stewart is still seeking his first top-10 finish of the season. He is undoubtedly balancing the frustration of running poorly with satisfaction in the strength of Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch. If he continues to finish on the lead lap, he will eventually become one of the season’s better values.
Apr 4 - 10:49 AM

A sixth-place qualification effort on Friday could be the signal of a reversal of fortune for Tony Stewart. Last fall he finished fourth on this track after qualifying fourth.

Most of Stewart’s top-10s at Martinsville came in groupings of two to four consecutive, so fantasy owners who like to play the odds might see this as a good omen.
Mar 28 - 12:33 AM

Tony Stewart qualified 20th for the Auto Club 400, which was the first time in five years at this track that he failed to crack the top 10.

Stewart is capable of coming from the middle of the pack en route to victory. His first win came in 2010 after qualifying 22nd, but this team has struggled too much in 2015 to make that a good gamble. Stewart should be approached with caution.
Mar 21 - 10:23 AM

A 17th-place qualification effort might not sound like much this week, but it is the best starting position for Tony Stewart since he qualified sixth in the 2013 spring Subway Fresh Fit 500. He missed the fall race that year and qualified in the 20s in both 2014 races.

The last time Stewart lined up on the ninth row at Phoenix was in 2011 when he qualified 18th for the spring race. He finished seventh. If he practices well on Saturday, he could be an acceptable dark horse.
Mar 14 - 12:17 AM

Tony Stewart won the 2012 Kobalt Tools 400, but he failed to crack the top 10 in his next two starts. He finished 33rd last year after losing four laps to the leader.

Stewart got off to a fairly strong start this week. He advanced to the final round of qualification and rolls off the grid 12th. He could be useful if he fits the final niche on a player’s roster.
Mar 7 - 8:13 AM

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.
Feb 20 - 11:51 AM

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.
