Tony Stewart made headlines in Talladega last year for two reasons.
In April, his legendary snark and wiseacre nature came to the forefront when he said, “We didn’t crash enough cars” and suggested the race should be run on a “Figure 8” course. See the above video for more.
In October, he single-handedly attempted to rectify those sarcastic comments when he made contact with Michael Waltrip, and started the traditional “Big One” that took out more than a dozen cars.
As this is the first Gen-6 race at Talladega, and after a mild Daytona 500 but one where Stewart was involved with an accident, it will be interesting to see what headlines the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion will generate this time around.
Ideally, he’ll be hoping it will be for surviving the inevitable carnage. Stewart is off to a slow start in 2013, ranking only 22nd in the points standings with one top-10 finish in the first nine races.
