Talks about Dirt Track and NASCAR Racing "I never was a driver brought up running one type of car and one type of surface. I always ran dirt and pavement. I like that. I like the challenge. I like the dirt tracks because they change all the time. Pavement tracks, when I got in the Cup series, the pavement racing I had done before that, tracks really didn't change a lot. In the Cup series, the groove moves around and it gets wider and you might run the bottom for a little while and the top, and that's a lot like dirt racing too. I like that challenge of trying to figure out as a driver what to do to make yourself better." Tony Stewart

by Bob Lefsetz You mean I need a bigger engine and a swoopy style to get laid? I just go on Tinder! Welcome to the baby boomer nightmare, wherein everything theyâ€™ve held near and dear becomes irrelevant. Like automobiles. Cars are a utility. So long Ferrari. So long Aston Martin. So long the SUV. Do you think kids want to own a big box with terrible mileage just like their parents drive? Just because cars have lasted a century, that does not mean they're here to stay, that does not mean they're not ripe for disruption. Cars are the newspapers of today. Something oldsters can't live without and youngsters can.
