Tony Stewart wants Danica Patrick to cram it up Richard Petty’s butt

danica-patrickTony Stewart has a plan for how Danica Patrick can prove Richard Petty wrong. Last week, the man known to many as the “King of NASCAR” said the only way Patrick will ever win a race is if she’s the only one on the track. Stewart, who is Patrick’s employer and teammate with Stewart-Haas racing, thinks Danica should challenge the old man.

“I think that (a race) would settle it once and for all — maybe get him to shut up a little bit, too,” Stewart said Wednesday, via USA Today Sports. “… I will supply the cars. If he wants to race her, I’ll make sure they have exactly the same setup in the car and give him the chance. He can drive one of my 14 cars, I don’t care.”

When someone joked that Patrick should take the checkered flag to Petty for an autograph after beating him, Stewart said he had a better plan.

“If I were her, I’d take if over there and cram it up his (butt),” he said. “But that’s just me.”

Stewart also said that the 76-year-old Petty underestimates how much NASCAR has changed since he raced and that it is much harder to win now than it was 40 years ago. Patrick has one top-10 finish in her career. She did not take the bait when asked about Petty’s criticism last week.

“People have said things in the past, they’re going to say things in the future,” Patrick said. “I still say the same thing: Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. People will judge what he said, whether they judge it well or not, and I’m just not going to (judge).

“The people that matter the most to me are my team, my sponsors and those little 3-year-old kids that run up to you and want a great big hug and say they want to grow up to be like you. That’s the stuff I really focus on.”

Make it happen. Who wouldn’t watch that race? I bet even people who hate NASCAR would tune in.

Danica Patrick: Tony Stewart off the meds and back to life

Tony StewartTony Stewart is out at least the next month — and likely longer — as he recovers from a broken leg suffered during a crash at Southern Iowa Speedway on Aug. 5. Though Stewart needs to take extensive care of himself while recovering, Danica Patrick makes it sound like her Stewart-Haas Racing boss/teammate is improving.

“I’ve heard he’s kind of getting back in the game, you know,” Patrick said Friday at Michigan International Speedway, per USA Today Sports. “He wants to know everything that’s going on. He wants to be able to hear what we’re doing. He’s off the meds and back to life again.”

Patrick had been communicating with Stewart via text message while he was in the hospital recovering. Stewart-Haas competition director Greg Zipadelli has also been in contact with Stewart and says Smoke is still in a lot of pain. He also says that the recovery process will be slow.

“We’ve been working under the assumption that he’s out for the next month or so, or longer,” Zipadelli said Friday, via ESPN. “He went to the doctor this week, he had a decent visit — no setbacks. … I saw him on Wednesday night, and we spent some time together. … He’s in great spirits. He’s going through a transition period. The next seven to 14 days will tell a lot about how [the leg] heals, whether things take. We’ll update you guys as we can, but it’s going to be a really slow process.”

Austin Dillon is racing in Stewart’s place on the team for the time being. He finished 14th at the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday and 21st in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race. Nobody can come close to replacing Stewart both for his racing ability and personality around the track.

Tony Stewart on Joey Logano fight: He’s a little girl, I’m gonna bust his ass (Video)

Joey-Logano-Tony-Stewart-fightJoey Logano has not made many friends in the Sprint Cup Series over the past two weeks, and the 22-year-old doesn’t seem to care. Last weekend, Logano was spun out by Denny Hamlin near the finish of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Logano went after Hamlin after the race (video here) and some mild shoving took place.

Coincidentally, the two drivers found themselves fighting for position on the last lap at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana on Sunday. This time, Logano returned the favor by drifting toward the top of the track and bumping Hamlin, causing him to lose control and crash head-on into the wall. Hamlin had to spend the night in the hospital because of back pain, but Logano said “that’s what he gets” after the race when referencing what happened a week ago.

However, Hamlin isn’t the only enemy Logano has made. During a restart following a caution with a few laps to go on Sunday, he also angered Tony Stewart by ducking below the white line to block Stewart’s No. 14 car from passing. Stewart confronted Logano on pit road after the game and a few swings were thrown.

Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife Heather Clem reportedly made sex tapes with Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart

This sex tape business involving wrestler Hulk Hogan, shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge, and Bubba’s ex-wife Heather Clem (now Heather Cole, and pictured) is taking another wild turn.

We passed along a report in March saying that an alleged Hulk Hogan sex tape was being shopped. The video was real, and Gawker.com was sued by the Hulkster for publishing it.

The video was of Hogan having sex with the ex-wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, Heather Clem. Reports last month claimed that Clem regularly had sex with other men with Bubba’s consent, so long as she videotaped it.

Now, Gawker, which is being sued for $100 million for posting a clip of the sex tape on their website, reports that Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart, and Aubrey Huff are among those who also had sex with Clem on tape.

It seems like an odd group, but we can at least explain two of the hookups: former Bucs DL Sapp and former Rays 1B/OF Huff were both big athletes in the Tampa area where Bubba broadcasts from. And Stewart, well Stewart just loves women.

Tony Stewart grabs Kevin Harvick’s wife’s behind (Picture)

Tony Stewart has a pre-race ritual where he grabs someone’s behind for good luck, and Kevin Harvick’s wife was the victim on Sunday before the Geico 400 at Chicagoland.

Doug Demmons of The Birmingham News says that Stewart frequently grabs the behind of DeLana Harvick before races. DeLana apparently even said on the radio that she is on the lookout to avoid the grab so that she doesn’t give Stewart luck.

Harvick must have let her guard down on Sunday, because as you can see in the video above, Stewart got her.

Stewart is good friends with the Harvicks and drove for their teams many years at Daytona until they shut down the team, so he obviously feels comfortable enough to cross what would otherwise be considered a boundary for a married woman.

DeLana later tweeted about the grab and seemed to find it funny:

Here’s another look at the grab:

Tony Stewart throws helmet at Matt Kenseth after wreck (Video)

Tony Stewart was fuming after wrecking during Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol, Tenn., and he showed his displeasure with Matt Kenseth by throwing his helmet at the No. 17 car.

Stewart and Kenseth were battling for the lead on lap 332 when Kenseth slid up and made contact with the No. 14 car. Stewart moved down on the track and continued the contact with Kenseth until both cars crashed.

Stewart was so upset with Kenseth that he chucked his helmet at the No. 17 car as Kenseth was making his way down pit road.

Stewart, a three-time Sprint Cup winner, is known for speaking his mind and lacking a filter, so the reaction was hardly surprising. It was actually pretty awesome.

Stewart then promised to run over Kenseth every chance he gets.

“We weren’t that great of a race car,” Stewart said during interviews, per FOXSports.com. “But we were definitely faster than that after that restart. I checked up twice to not run over him (Kenseth), and I learned my lesson there. I’m going to run over him every him every chance I’ve got from now ‘til the end of the year, every chance I’ve got.”

Tony Stewart apologizes for not having more wrecks at Talladega

Tony Stewart was at his absolute sarcastic best on Sunday after finishing 24th in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. Stewart ran out of gas twice and got caught in an eight-car wreck with four laps to go in the race, but he managed to maintain his biting sense of humor.

“We didn’t quite crash half the field which is what we normally look to do here. I was excited about it. I thought it was a pretty good race. I made it further than I thought I would before I got crashed. I call it a successful day,” Stewart joked to reporters.

“Honestly, I think if we haven’t crashed at least 50 percent of the field by the end of the race, we need to extend the race until we at least crash 50 percent of the cars because it’s not fair to these fans for them to not see any more wrecks than that and more torn-up cars. We still had over half the cars running at the end and it shouldn’t be that way.”

“Like I said if we don’t crash half of the field by the end of the race they really need to extend it because that is what the fans want they want to see that excitement. I feel bad that as drivers we couldn’t do a better job of crashing enough cars for them today … I feel like that is what we are here for. I feel bad if I don’t spend at least 150,000 dollars in torn-up race cars going back to the shop. We definitely have to do a better job with that.”

Stewart dropped to seventh in the points standings after his 24th place finish, but it’s still extremely early in the season. There’s a reason we love Smoke, and this is it. The guy has proven several times over the years that he is not afraid to speak his mind, and we love him for it.
