Smoke smokes them

Posted Nov 21, 2005 in Sport.

I'd like to offer my congratulations to Tony Stewart for winning NASCAR's 2005 NEXTEL Cup Championship. “Smoke” had 5 wins in this, his second cup championship, but it was his consistency and maturity that made the difference.

One of the truly great racers of our time, Tony has transformed his bad-boy image to become well-liked by the other drivers and the media. Perhaps more importantly, he has become a great commodity for his sponsor. For me, the most memorable moment of this season was his popular victory in the Brickyard 400, at his home track of Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

    I saw his interview on ESPN and he seemed like a real class act. I'm sure Home Depot couldn't be happier right before the Holiday season.
