11:21 AM ET 01.12 | Tony Stewart and Greg Zipadelli won 33 races and two NASCAR championships together over a successful decade together. They split after the 2008 season when Stewart left to become co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, and Stewart begins this season with his third different crew chief since Zipadelli. It's certainly evidence Stewart has struggled to find the same chemistry he had with Zipadelli all those years. So why not just reunite with Zipadelli? Zipadelli told The Associated Press on Friday it crossed his mind, and he even he offered last year to return to the pit box this season with Stewart. The three-time Cup champion wouldn't entertain the idea.

Exactly....Stewart is looking at the bigger picture and which situation has more benefit to the whole organization.........Having Zippy back as CC solves one small problem, but leaves a much bigger one.........Stewart has made the right call.

Tony is in for a rough year, no matter who his CC is.......the constant wear & tear on his right leg, even though it is considered "healed" , will be a curse for him this year......especially in the longer races.
Tony will still be a strong driver.....just not as strong as normal.

A new post ? Must be getting closer. Does Smoke ever listen to anyone?

January 13, 2014  11:04 AM ET

Based on his track record with crew chiefs, even firing the one who he won the Cup with, who in their right mind wants this job? On top of that, consider the out and out disarray (barrel o' hotheads) over there and, well, the ol' "Ten Foot Pole" comes into mind.
