Tony Stewart unplugged

Posted on: February 16, 2008 5:32 pm

Tony Stewart is always entertaining during his press conferences and interviews and his post-race Busch Series winner's press conference was no exception.

For one, Stewart promised that media that if he wins the Daytona 500 on Sunday he will let members of the media chop of his now long-flowing hair.

"I'll tell you what, I'll let you guys each take a shot at the scissors tomorrow if we can win thing thing. Each of you can cut a lock for yourself. That's my gift."

Stewart was also toying with the idea of putting a Kevin Harvick bobblehead in his car before being shot down by crew chief Greg Zippadelli.

"I know we put a lot of work into trying to get Kevin's mounted today and Zippy was the one that put the squash on it. The guys were all ready. Had all the hardware to bolt it in.

"Zippy is so knotted up about tomorrow right now, it was hard to convince him that putting a toy in the car was actually going to make us more productive today. Didn't have much luck there.
