â†µStewart crashed with Ryan Newman, who drives for Stewart's company, in the last practice before Sunday's Daytona 500. Apparently, Stewart was trailing Newman closely when Newman's car lost a tire and spun out. Blame ... the tire. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"Same stuff that we always talk about every year, failures Goodyear has," said Stewart, who frequently takes the tiremaker to task. "I think that's part of their marketing campaign — the more we talk about it, the more press they get. But, I think they forget it's supposed to be in a good way, not a bad way." â†µâ†µYes, this is all a part of Goodyear's master plan to be known throughout the world for making bad tires. Actually, that might be right. For decades the name Goodyear has been tied to a giant zeppelin, a vessel made most famous by the Hindenburg. There's gold in them thar disasters.â†µ
