    Just hope he doesn’t run over anyone again

    Tony Stewart will do smoke was back in the day when he was hot NASCAR about 20 years ago. 🥶

    He 17 years older than she is, she’s a gold digger, I don’t see this lasting long.

    Another Ray Everham. His Dodge team fell off after he started chasing that tail. Now look at Stewart. Hes chasing that tail and his cup team won two races. Last year the 4 car won 8 races by himself.

    The underdog story in racing is a thing of the past. Nepotism has taken over.

  6. J Cerullo on November 19, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    So whats happening with Don Shumacher racing

  7. scarecrow _ on November 19, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Friendly reminder, don’t make Stewart mad because you might just get run over on the track under yellow.

    LP snagged TS. I like LP and I like TS, but I don’t see them as a great couple or actually lasting—she’ll get tired of him after just a few years given he’s quite a bit older, and not into fitness. He has $$$$$… LP. That one coming from a mile away

    I made a video on this myself I think people don’t realize how big this is for the sport this could change the NHRA landscape as we know it

  10. HPB on November 19, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Go Team Stewart! Joe Gibbs just might be able to give you a tip or two.
    P.S. Good luck handling Team Force..

  11. Curtis on November 19, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    This is nothing but great news.
    Solid partnership w/Hagan, Pruett, and Smoke.

    All started when he became Champion across three separate divisions, simultaneously!
    Midget, Sprint, and Silver Crown …
    Then IndyCar championship.
    Multiple Nascar championships.
    All the same time.

    The cool part about this is … as we all know, anyone that’s truly exposed to NHRA drag racing, becomes a fan.
    Stewart’s no exception.

    TSr is fighting "blank Check" racing John force – capo racing no one cuts a better "light" than big John !! He beat Matt with a late stage and Matt blew up ooopps

  15. Rick F on November 19, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I like tony, always have, but he needs to focus on less.. can’t do it all. This is probably why his cup cars are lacking

  16. Earl James on November 19, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Hopefully they can keep him from running over people in the pits with the golf cart.

  17. Nick Noir on November 19, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Leah has chocked with many teams Oops Matt gets to mad he is a B lister

  18. S King on November 19, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    FTR (Fat Tony Racing) will be a good addition to the NHRA …

  19. James Hooper on November 19, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Needs to be a MOPAR !

  20. Dennis Totman on November 19, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Sucks up to Schumacher and then poaches his drivers and crew chiefs. Not cool. Should have started with his own people and built his own deal without destroying DSR.

  21. michael doucet, sr. on November 19, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Stick with what works, MOPAR.

  22. Samet Özkan on November 19, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    He is a murderer and traitor

  23. Michael Moore on November 19, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Great Move Picking up Matt hagen..Great choices in A New Team . Now Make it happen CAPTAIN

  24. dsunds89 on November 19, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    I wonder how long that’s going to last? When Alan Johnson Brockway from Schumacher. Also who is going to Foot the bill?

  25. Chris on November 19, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    That’s awesome! Welcome to the club Tony , the man did his research, got some wheel time , did his work instead of just jumping in with deep pockets.

  26. Larry Eddings on November 19, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Go TSR!

    I guess nobody remembers or chooses not to him running over a guy and killing him on a dirt track because he wrecked the guy the guy got out of his car to retaliate and Tony Stewart ran over and killed him went to court. Somehow or another he paid off the judge or the jury but was acquitted for not enough evidence. The dude is a hothead just like the sons of b****** in NASCAR like Denny Hamlin Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick who used their car as a deadly weapon and retaliate against other drivers and it is a very dangerous thing to do it is a fine line between assault with a deadly weapon in hotheads using the car to inflict injuries and havoc on another driver who they don’t agree with. Tony Stewart Falls in this category. Just because he’s famous and maybe towards the top of the category of race car drivers that he is not persecuted for what he did. But he did what he did and what he did was wrong. If you go back over the years and look at the interviews with him he acts like he’s better than anybody else and wherever he does is excusable because he’s so f****** good or so f****** bad-ass and it’s wrong. Kind of like the Earnhardt senior Intimidator crap he’s a dirty racer I don’t care how successful he was you don’t knock people out of the way to win a race. People laugh it off and say that’s racing rubbing is racing. Even his son doesn’t agree with that type of racing. There are some NASCAR racers who try to race as clean as possible and when they’re interviewed about incidences were Earnhardt senior moved them out of the way to win a race they kind of grin how many times have you heard Earnhardt say well I meant to move them out of the way. Look up red farmer and longtime racing Legend he’ll tell you he never ever raced anybody the way I raced people he will tell you he took pride in not knocking people out of the way don’t use his bumper to race with he raced everybody is clean as he could. I respect him more than I would ever respect somebody who uses their bumper cuz they’re not good enough to race somebody clean. It takes way more talent to race somebody clean than it does to race somebody dirty and use your bumper to win. If Earnhardt senior Gooden beat you clean and he would just run into the back of your ass and send your ass in the wall and after the race he would grin and say I didn’t mean to reckon he’s learned to moving out of the way yeah but how many times did you win when you wreck somebody NASCAR doesn’t have rules to control that type of behavior they kind of like it and they condone it and it’s not good for racing I can’t believe Earnhardt did it for so long over the years and got away with it I used to be an Earnhardt fan but after I seen all the dirty s*** Earnhardt dead over the years I lost interest in him and NASCAR because there’s too many good drivers out there who aren’t getting credit for their driving abilities because they were sent into the wall but a greedy motherfuker like Earnhardt senior don’t get me wrong and Heart Senior had a lot of talent it’s just that he didn’t use it to his ability when he didn’t have the fastest car the day he would wreck somebody so he would win the race and that is not right in my book

    I think he’s making a great move. He’ll have two of the finest drivers in the nhra. Good look Tony on your marriage 💑 . You’ll make a wonderful couple
