  • OT: Tony Stewart shows off his absurd car collection to Jeff Gordon



    An interesting exchange between Tony and Jeff at 1:50 concerning IndyCars. I'm thinking of using Jeff G's response as my sig line,

            I was surprised that Gordon didn't know the differences between a G-Force and a Dallara.

              Would seem that Jeff would have done Indy Cars based on his statement to Tony.

                Why should anyone be surprised? He is no more interested in those cars (or the series they ran in) now than he was nearly a quarter of a century ago. Besides, those two cars could hardly be more generic-looking. They look like the box a race car came in.

                  Would seem hind-speak is always 20/20 (and cheap).

                    Saw this piece, really cool interview and memories shared. I miss early 00’s Cup watching those two.

                      In the conversation at the Crystal Pepsi midget they talk about the Diet-Pepsi car Jeff won the National Championship in with Rollie Helmling.. Rollie has that car, as it last raced, in his house. Rollie gave Jeff his start and they have remained close. They are at the chili bowl together.

                        That's what he said. I'm not going to attempt to read his mind to determine what he "really meant."

                          Uh oh the man who unwittingly started the split in the first place now rekindling the flames with one sentence?

                            There's another part of that interview where Tony explained that he had been running Busch for Harry Ranier and was going to go with AJ for the IRL for the short early seasons but AJ didn't want him to be doing the part time stock car deal so he went to Menard. Then when he was looking to move to Cup Hendrick wanted him in the #25 car but he went with Gibbs in the #20

                              Great article with several quotes about Indy Car and the 500 from Jeff.
