The NASCAR season just got a little more heated as Tony Stewart sent a clear message to Matt Kenseth after wrecking his car on the 332nd lap at Bristol.
Stewart was so upset with the blocking strategy and wreck that he took off his helmet and used two hands to throw it at Henseth’s car as it drove by. Stewart said that it was the blocking strategy that sent him over the edge:
“I checked up twice (off the gas) to not run over him and I learned my lesson there—I’m going to run over him every him every chance I’ve got from now until the end of the year, every chance I’ve got.
We got by Matt there, and it probably wasn’t the ideal pass, but we made sure to try the same thing (every time). We ran on the restart faster than him each lap, so we just learned our lesson that next time just drive through him, not even be patient by him. We’re not going to give him that chance again.”
