Tony Qualified: 27th
Tony Finished: 11th!!!
Points: 563 (25th in points standings)
So, qualifying this week wasn’t the best. Tony Stewart didn’t make it past the first round, thus ended up starting the race at New Hampshire 27th, sadly making him the lowest qualifier among the four Stewart-Haas drivers. After I found out how qualifying went, I told myself Tony doesn’t usually qualify well. I blamed the fact of it on the fact that the teams were running the original 2015 aero package. All that pep talking to myself (just to clarify I wasn’t really talking to myself- this was all internal in my head) didn’t really lift my hopes up for the race. I should learn not to trust myself when it comes to these things- because I would say that this ended up being the best race that they have had in awhile. (more…)
