Tony Stewart breaks leg in Sprint Cup crash in Iowa

Tony Stewart breaks leg in Sprint Cup crash in Iowa

When you tell someone to “break a leg,” very rarely is it often meant to be taken literally.

Unfortunately, NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart did just that in a crash at a track in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Stewart broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg. USA Today reports that there were five laps remaining in the 30-lap Front Row Challenge when Josh Higday’s car spun on Turn 4 and collected the top three cars, which included Stewart’s.

Track officials said in the story that Stewart was conscious and talking to responders after being placed on a stretcher. He was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery.

Stewart will miss this weekend’s NASCAR race at Watkins Glen, and it’s likely he’ll miss other races while he works on his recovery.

Thoughts and prayers are with Stewart, his family and all involved while he recovers. Feel free to leave a comment below, or send us a tweet to @PowerBlockTV.

NASCAR’s Tony Stewart, Joey Logano fight after race

Tony Stewart and Joey Logano went head-to-head against one another Sunday, but their animosity didn’t stay on the race track.

After a last-lap wreck between Logano and Denny Hamlin, Boston.com says Logano then blocked Stewart on the race’s final restart. This likely contributed to the fist fight after the race.

“Well, Joey spun the tires on the restart and everybody had trouble with that,” Stewart said in an interview with Fox. “But it’s not my fault that he spun the tires. For a guy that’s been complaining about everybody else’s driving here and then for him to do that, it’s a double standard. He makes the choice. He makes the decision to run us down there, and when you run a driver down there you take responsibility for what happens after that.”

Tony Stewart caught grabbing rear-end of Kevin Harvick’s wife

We all have our good luck rituals. Some people might have a lucky object they carry around, a lucky shirt or a lucky … butt grab?

Tony Stewart was caught on camera gabbing the rear end of Kevin Harvick’s wife for “good luck.” Apparently this is something he’s always done.

Stewart told USA Today that it’s the first time cameras have caught him. “This is old news … We’ve been doing that since I was driving the Nationwide car with them. We’ve always joked around and horsed around like that.”

So, did it work out for Stewart? The NASCAR racer finished sixth at Chicagoland Speedway and moved to third in the series standings, the story reported.

See the video of Stewart’s grab here:

Tony Stewart throws helmet at Matt Kenseth after NASCAR accident

If you watched NASCAR this weekend in Bristol, you probably saw where Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth got into a small scuffle.

As the two were fighting for the lead, they both turned and hit the wall, which diminished any chance for either racer to win.

What happen next is probably described best by Yahoo! Sports:

Stewart’s car was the more damaged, and as Kenseth passed him on pit road, Stewart fired a low strike at Kenseth’s hood. Hop-step, two hands … that was a Olympic-quality helmet tossing, friends.

According to Yahoo!, Stewart made no attempt to hide his disgust with Kenseth. “I’m going to run over him every chance I get for the rest of the year,” he said of Kenseth. And when informed that he’d get his helmet back, he shot back, “I don’t give a crap. Hell with the helmet.”

UPDATE:

According to bleacherreport.com, the quoted NASCAR David Higdon, saying, [quote align=”center” color=”#999999″] We’re definitely not fining Tony. We didn’t feel he crossed the line with our new parameters of getting a little more back to the drivers to control their own actions.” [/quote]
