Stewart to Dodge??

One of the many rumors floating around NASCAR is that Tony Stewart will drive a Dodge for Chip Ganassi next year.

This would be a coup for Dodge IMO.Supposedly,Stewart has worn his welcome out with Joe Gibbs with his temperment this year.Still this would be a huge pickup for Dodge.But,it's still a rumor.

I hope not. He can drive a race car but with his short temper and grade 3 attitude this is one guy Dodge can do without.

I think that would be great! NASCAR needs more deviate physical behavior people like Tony. Bring it on. I would love to see Tony in an Intrepid putting Gordon into the wall.

Personally I like Tony. I like the way he drives and yes I like his attitude. However I could do without the temper tantrums. Granted i thought it was great when he ran gordan into the wall. But in retrospect I don't think it was such a good idea.

I would be happy to have Tony as a Dodge driver. I think he would make an excellent adition. I just think he needs someone to keep him under control. And if Joe Gibbs, the greatest coach in Redskin history, can't do it, NO ONE CAN! Let's hope Tony doesn't self destruct and can get back to what he does best, Winning!

i think its great every time someone runs gordon into the wall
tony stewart in a dodge? i definetly think that it would do some good, but, (maybe im wrong), i dont see tony stewart going anywhere. joe gibbs has a discipline, not winning is not acceptable. stewart has been doing good this year, (labonte...), why would he go anywhere? he's already on an awesome team? i dont know..........

Tony Stewart was just in my town (Sun Prairie, WI) last weekend for his induction into the Sprint Car/Midget Racing Hall of Fame at Angell Park Speedway.

HUGE turnout for that guy..wow. Seems like a nice fella. They've also got Jeff Gorodon's Pepsi-sponsored Midget race car here as well. It's pretty cool. If I go to the races this weekend I'll snap some pictures of it.

i'll admit that i disliked stewart with a passion when he was in the IRL, but that's cuz he was always wrecking and badmouthing arie luyendyk, who i like a lot. since he has jumped to WC i give him a lot more respect because he hates gordon as much as i do. i think he'd be a good thing for the dodge boys - he'd give them a driver capable of winning more races than the current dodge jockeys can. let's face it, the intrepids would probably have a few wins if we had some higher-end drivers.

Would be interesting if he switched , other rumors put Penske in dodges next year. However I don't think Dodges pockets are that deep after the miserable sales year they have had.

From what I understand,Chip Ganassi is wanting to also get Stewart to drive open wheel cars for him too.

Also,it looks like Stacey Compton's ride will be looking for a new sponser next year.He may also replace Buckshot Jones in the Petty car.

I'd love to see Stewart in a Dodge. He can be a pain with his attitude sometimes but he can DRIVE a car !!!

Don't be surprised, I think it may already be a done deal.
