  • A very NICE Tony Stewart story

    It seems that Tony never gets good publicity as NASCAR looks to make him the villian for it's series. Here's the good side.

    Bob Higman, at age 77, has some health problems that makes getting around difficult-he's been using a scooter, but it was about worn out and some people were trying to raise funds for a new one(They are very expensive).

    Seems that our Tony came up with the jack out of his own pocket for Bob at the Chili Bowl, so Bob has a new scooter.

    For those of you snooty people who don't know, Higman was a long time midget owner and nice guy that gave a lot of people their 1st rides, and helped a lot of guys over the years. While midget racing won't ever get Bob in the F-1 or CART hall of fame, he is one of those unforgettable characters who unlike many today, actually gave more to the sport than he ever took.

    Good job, Mr. Stewart.

    Know what really sucks? When people judge your character based solely on how nicey-nice you are with the media.

      I agree. Nice job, Tony. I've always thought Tony's heart is in the right place. He just has an anger management problem. It makes him look bad. Look at what he's done for Danny Lasoski.

        Since when does being an intense competitor give you an anger management problem???????

        Hey, if you had to hang around some of the schmucks in the media (remember Mr. Miller?) you'd get honked off too!

        I'll admit, Tony's done some not so nice things behind the scenes, but for the most part he's a good guy and perhaps the most versatile driver on the planet right now.

          Sorry, Belanger. I like TS a LOT, but I have to call 'em as I see 'em. Makes Tony a lot like a young AJ in my book.

            Actually Tony reminds me of a young Bob Knight who reminds me of AJ Foyt.

            I love all three of 'em.

            Its a boring world without the spice provided by those willing to be their own people, even to their own detriment.

                  TD, you shouldn't try to peddle that line to an old Purdue boy...

                  "What's he doing with that chair??!!"

                    I know it will never sell to a Purdue fan, but Knight did nothing with the chair that Tony didn't do with his helmet, or whatever it was that he threw into another car.

                      I like a guy who isn't afraid to show his emotions.

                      This isn't the first really nice thing I've ever heard of Stewart doing.

                        If some brat kid that I gave a "free ride" in college to yelled "hey Nelson" at me, I would have done more to him then Knight did. The kid had it coming.
