I thought we all needed some much needed Gratuitous Tony Stewart pictures don’t you?  I don’t remember when I started adding the “gratuitous Tony Stewart pictures” to my race posts – it seems like I have been doing it for a long time.  I obviously have not run into any Tony pictures gratuitous or otherwise for my posts since his injury. Anyway, I was looking through my Flickr account for a specific (non-race related) picture the other night when I caught sight of this picture Misty took from Champions week last year. We usually stand at the corner by the Fashion Show mall to get pictures of the actual burn outs but last year we decided to do something a little different and took full advantage of our media access to stand in the little roped off area in front of the Victory Lap stage for media. Misty was taking pictures of each driver as they were introduced on the stage- and this picture is obviously a picture of a somewhat pensive Kasey Kahne…but it’s Tony’s expression behind Kasey that CRACKS ME UP. I don’t know why it humors me so- I guess it’s because it’s like he’s slightly amused by us.  He had probably seen us earlier at the Chevy Gen6 car reveal – as not only did we sit in the first row, but then when media were invited onstage I drug Misty up there because I wanted to get some pictures of the car. Basically Tony photo-bombed this picture of Kasey without meaning to.
