    Have to give him credit. Most drivers wouldn't be THAT vocal with their displeasure. Definitely bet Goodyear won't be sponsoring Tony any time in the future though.

    Best part though, he's not wrong. Those tires sucked. I've never seen the cars that loose.

      "That's the most pathetic racing tire i've ever been on in my racing career. They exited out of formula 1. They exited out of the IRL. They exited out of CART. They exited out of the world of outlaws, and there's a reason for that, because goodyear can't build a tire that's worth a crap."
      is it May yet?

          Here is what he said:

          "That's the most pathetic racing tire I've ever been on in my professional career. They uh, they exited out of Formula one. They exited out of the IRL. They exited out of CART. They exited out of the WoO's. And there is a reason for that, cause Goodyear can't build a tire thats worth a crap. If I were Goodyear I'd be really embarrassed about this weekend and what they brought us here."

          also

          "It was ridiculous to have to race on a tire like this today. Not at this form of racing. If they can't do any better than that then they ought to just pull out of this sport and save us all a bunch of headaches. Because I guarantee you that Hoosier or Firestone or somebody could come in a do a much better job than they are right now."

            That had to be somewhat a well thought out planned retort.

            No cursing, and hit all the high points.

            What irks me (maybe its too soon for the truth), DW was a 16-oval WIN specialist, yet the vast majority those boohooing for him, hardcarders & fans, alike are the same ones trying to kill anything with more than 9 deg banking & 4 corners, where Dan ultimately made his home...

                I love it because he is not P.C. Right or wrong it great to see someone speak there mind.

                  I guess in today's race, Sunday, all that Mr. Stewart said was borne out. Look at all the tire failures today.

                    Tony is my favorite driver, but didn't he finish 3rd? Didn't his teammate finish 1st? Didn't everyone else have to race on the same tire? Do the best drivers in the world not know what to do with a loose race car?
                    Some people will do nearly anything in order to be able to not do anything.

                        My bad, I had to take the puppy out with 5 laps to go and he was in 3rd.

                            Goodyear's have been crap for years. Firestone ran them out of business in openwheel racing.

                            Good for Tony. He is just saying what everyone in NASCAR is afraid to.

                              You can tell Tony is nearing the end of his career...burning bridges.

                              You wonder why people don't like him???? His classless mouth.

                              A sponsors nightmare and liability his whole career.

                              Can he drive? Of course...but to finish second and run his mouth like that...whiner.
