As I sit here watching the Superbowl, I really have only one thing on my mind. NASCAR. I really can’t help myself- it’s how I am wired. Sports with balls are really just in my periphery, it’s sports with wheels that catch my attention and of those NASCAR that really catches my attention and my heart.
I will be the first to admit that at the end of last season I was ready for it. Can you blame me? It’s been a shitty two years for my driver on every level, some we can likely barely even comprehend. Of course that didn’t stop me from getting a tattoo supporting my driver during champions week in Las Vegas. But still- I was ready for it to be done. And I honestly didn’t even miss it that much (obviously by my lack of posts here during the off-season lamenting about how long the off season seems).
I am not happy about the last two years of my life by any means. It’s given me more drive and desire to get back to the old form that our fans and our sponsors and everybody are use to seeing us in. So I am looking forward to it. This is probably the most prepared I’ve been in awhile for a season to start. — Tony Stewart, CMS Media Tour, 1-27-15
