To say Tony Stewart endured the ups and downs that come with racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series this past weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway might be the understatement of the year.
Stewart took his first career Atlanta pole and looked in good shape to add a fourth win to his record at the 1.5 mile venue.
That turned out to be the highlight of his weekend. Early Sunday, the news filtered out that Stewart’s primary sponsor would be bailing next season; the news came on the heels of the loss of another sponsor for Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman. Stewart is now faced with the daunting task of finding backing not only for himself, but Newman and the driver he hopes to add as a third fulltime team next season, Danica Patrick. MORE>>>
