Will smoke be the same guy ?

Recommended Posts

With the ownership pressure to get and hold sponsers and such do you think he will be the same guy quick to say and do the things he has in the past? I cant see him being to different

a guy no matter what he owns or has responsability for.

sure would be a bummer to see him get all politically correct.

He is going to be one ornery guy if they keep losing like most new owners do. I wonder is he will snap if they don't win all year? The guy is a great driver and super competitive, but I don't know if he can handle that much losing.

dont think he can be the same cuz hes an owner hes a different guy

i think it will depend on how much weight he puts on his shoulders

dont think wining will be as important as runnin well

if hes 20th and back he going to get ugly but if him and ryan get in the top ten a few times and such hes smart enought to know that it dont come over night and who knows maybe it will

who excepted the 18 to run like that last yr

The 18 was not on a new team though. I think Stewart is one heck of a talent, but borderline psychotic. I think he will go nuts if they aren't winning or in the top ten.

I think he will do fine, he brought alot of talent to the team. Theres no doubt that Tony's emotions will get the best of him a few times this year. I don't think he will change too much, everyone knows that when Tony goes nutz its because of his passion for racing. Smoke will have a few meltdowns this year, you can count on that!

I'm a huge Martin fan as well. I hope he does well this year. He a class guy who just shuts up and races. There isn't a circus following him around. I think he may be a little more hungry for a championship now that he has gotten a little rest. He is too nice sometimes.

Tony will have to reign in his emotions a little or sponsors will avoid him in this politically correct society. I like his passion and skill, but you would think at 35 or whatever he is he could keep from acting like my 10 year old who was just grounded from the Playstation.

Tony does get fairly wound up in his emotions but he is pure talent when it conmes to driving race cars. I see Tony having a pretty good season.

The dude is good.

Ya I believe mark will make the chase no problem and should win a race or 2

Ya sponsers will be a issue with tony specially if hes not running up and front and actiong like a 10 yr old on and off the track but ithink as you hes a little older and will take

some of gibbs with him

Based on what I read last year in Rolling Stone magazine, I don't think there is much of a chance he will ever out grow his wild emotional side. At least I hope he won't give in to the preasure and turn into a prim and propper driver. We need guys like him for the sport.

ya these guys need to spice it up alittle

like the old days

nascar needs to let fight after the race not with the cars

at least on pit road where someone could get run over

but if you get bumped you bump back

like the 3 told the 2 i'm not the 24 I'll hit you back lol

they let hockeys player go at

I like to see passion from Stewart, just not the 2 year old temper tantrum every time something goes wrong. As for the fighting, these guys all talk tough but lets face it they are all about 5'2" and 120lbs with the exception of a few. The average guy could knock them out in a couple wacks. It would be fun to watch though. Put them on the finish line and give them 5 minutes to duke it out and then shut up and race.

I don't think you all of a sudden grow up at 30 something years old or what-ever age he is and stop acting like a spoiled little cry baby brat.

I think he'll continue to embarrass himself and anyone who happens to be in his way.

He's NO JJ in the Class department thats for sure.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
