11:00 AM ET 08.26 | Short-track racing makes a man a mite feisty. Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth were battling for the lead when both turned downward and hit the wall, effectively ending both their chances at a win. Stewart's car was the more damaged, and as Kenseth passed him on pit road, Stewart fired a low strike right at Kenseth's hood. Hop-step, two hands ... that was Olympic-quality helmet tossing, friends. Interviewed as his car was under repair, 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."

Saw the same thing Rex.. just hard racing.. and with passing a premium at Bristol now.. you almost have to root out the guy in front of you to gain a position

Their are alot of drity drivers out thier and Kenseth is one of them.I watch the race last night and the loser that took out Patrick is also a drity driver.

Rex is right two guys just racing if the shoe was on the other foot I bet Matt wouldn't have thrown his helmet ...........

at least some feelings got hurt at bristol, thats an improvement over the last few snoozers there.. i'm still not convinced on the new configuration though

Don't know why Tony would be forcin all his anger on Matt. It was racin on a small track and nothin else. Tony had a very bad night as a team owner and driver. Danica wrecked and Newman wrecked, and Tony is now in the chase danger zone with Newman out of chase luck.
Danica did ok most of the nigh,t but that 78 needs more practice, He did not have control of his car most of the night,

it was a more interestin race than the last few befor the Glen,for sure.

Stewart, you prima donna!!! Everytime I have watched the clip - YOU Stewart - YOU came down on Kenseth. Then you kept your car turned into Kenseth until you wrecked him and you ignorant self. Someday you may grow up and get that Indy superioty out of your system. Till then, I hope it is so expensive for you that you have to go back to the Indy ignorants...

YOU WERE THE AGGRESSOR - JUST LIKE DANICA !!!

First, last week Gordon doesn't believe he should be passed on the inside by JR or anyone, I guess...

Maybe you three should see the tape the Giants and 49ers are putting out for bullying...

It is pay for back for the Hornish wreck... That Indy temper is going to get her hurt - just wait. It is NEVER her fault. Really funny how the other girl races and you hardly ever hear her name. She is 10 times the LADY and driver that Danica will ever be...

Stewart is an out and out **** and need to have his handed to him one time. That would shut him up. He's too old and fat and out of shape to do anything about it. Someone just needs to wipe the floor with him and be done with it.

this is how you lose credibility very fast.. 78 didn't hold his line, not her fault.

I'm a big Tony Stewart fan and I love the helmet toss (great throw!), but I don't see anything on that video but two guys racing & bumping side by side getting loose and spinning out. If anything it looked like Kenseth was more in control of his line than Smoke was of his.

I agree with everything you said, except the helmet toss. Looked like a little girl throwing it with 2 hands.

Bristol , wasn't the best nor the worst racing I've seen there. #78 and JPM need to go to Nationwide. #11 and 20 worked it hard last night and Vickers #55 and Clint #15 had great cars. Lot's of mistakes in the pit area lot's of miscalls. Saw some good beating and banging so overall a nice race to watch last night.

All and all this is Bristol where the tempers are high and the brain content is spastic.

T.S. is a whiner! He is another Kurt Bush with a little better handle on his biting habit. Grow up!
