Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart sat down with host Steve Byrnes on Wednesday’s NASCAR Race Hub (Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m. ET) to discuss his upcoming Prelude to the Dream, as well as the recent controversies in NASCAR.
Byrnes: What is your view of “boys have at it?”
Tony Stewart: “ I‘m kinda confused by it now. I guess I am waiting for a definition of what is it. It’s like ‘Boys, have at it … from what to what? Where do they want us to go with it? Where is the line in the sand? Nobody really has defined what the line in the sand is yet, so none of us really know what we are supposed to do, or what we are allowed to do, what are we not allowed to do, where are we allowed to do it … what’s acceptable and not acceptable?
"And, trust me, I am 100-percent behind NASCAR has to be the governing body … they have to be the ones that play referee. But, don’t tell us to have at it and then start fining us when nobody really knows where the line is. If we know where the line is, guys probably are not going to go over it quite as much. You have to at least know where that line is, so if you go over it, it doesn’t bother you as much (when you get punished).”
Byrnes: I think it is intentionally vague … I’m just sayin’ ...
Stewart: “I am a promoter and I don’t disagree with you.”
