Stewart addresses Australia run-in

Posted By Pete Pistone

Tony Stewart met with the media during Thursday's Preseason Thunder test session activities at Daytona International Speedway and commented on the altercation he was in with authorities last week while competing in a Sprint Cup Series event in Australia.

Despite reports to the contrary Stewart was not sporting a black eye during his media session and said the disagreement with a track operators stemmed from what he considered dangerous racing conditions.

According to Stewart the conversation "went a bit further than a normal dispute."

"I've always stood up for what I believe. I didn't think the conditions were safe to run. They felt different."

Asked if he would return to compete in Australia again next winter Stewart said he'd "Love to. Except for the last night we had an excellent time."

"I'm not the least bit proud of it. "I'm shamed of it," Stewart said of the ordeal.

Stewart and his Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Ryan Newman are both in Daytona taking part in the three-day test session.

Mobil 1 to sponsor Stewart

Mobil 1's long-rumored move to Stewart Haas Racing was made official Tuesday.

Mobil 1 will split sponsorship on Tony Stewart's No. 14 car with Office Depot, serving as primary sponsor for 11 races. Old Spice, which had been sharing sponsorship, is leaving after the season.

Mobil 1 has been the primary sponsor for Sam Hornish Jr., but it got the boot when Penske Racing opted to sign Shell/Pennzoil to sponosr Kurt Busch starting in 2011.

Stewart on the hunt for a new No. 14 co-sponsor


I think it's safe to say the honeymoon phase is over at Stewart Haas Racing.

After a stellar first-year campaign as owner/driver in 2009 that saw Tony Stewart win four points races as well as the all-star race and finish as the regular-season points leader, he has just three top 10s through the first 11 races of 2010 and is 18th in points.

He hasn't finished better than 16th in the past six races.

And now the Charlotte Observer is reporting that Old Spice, which shares sponsorship of Stewart's No. 14 car with Office Depot, will not be returning next season.

You have to wonder if he's having any second thoughts about this ownership deal. It's not all it's cracked up to be. Seems like a whole lot of headaches to me. Who would want that?

Perhaps these issues played a part in Kevin Harvick deciding that Richard Childress Racing isn't such a bad place to be after all -- if the reports of an impending new deal are true.
