Tony Stewart: Please Shut Up! [A.J. Cordi]

Seriously, this guy just won't shut up until he wins a race. Then, he'll probably find something wrong with the way he won (that is, if he wins.) He's finally gotten over not making the chase, but now has a new complaint for NASCAR. "Bogus" caution flags.

Stewart claims he refused to do any NASCAR interviews after the race to "avoid" insulting NASCAR. He then went on to say that NASCAR is "playing God" and started comparing the great racing sport to professional wrestling.

"I guess NASCAR thinks 'Hey, wrestling worked, and it was for the most part staged, so I guess it's going to work in racing, too,'" Stewart said on his satellite radio program.

But that wasn't the end of it. Before reading on, take note that if this had been in the NBA, he would probably be fined or suspended.

"They can almost dictate the race instead of the drivers doing it. It's happened too many times this year ...I can't understand how long the fans are going to let NASCAR treat them like they're stupid before the fans finally turn on NASCAR ...I don't know that they've run a fair race all year."

If that's not bad enough, Stewart actually had the nerve to say that him racing is not all about the money, but the integrity of the sport.

"When I feel our own sanctioning body isn't taking care of that, it's hard to support them and feel proud about being a driver in the Nextel Cup Series when they're throwing debris cautions," he said.

When is enough actually enough? When will he stop crying like a little girl and start acting like a professional? If he put as much effort into his racing as he does his useless and senseless complaining he might actually win a freakin' race!
By the way, good-job Stewart! That was great how you "avoided" insulting NASCAR!
