A local TV guy asked Tony Stewart about NASCAR's new points system on Friday at Martinsville Speedway. But Stewart didn't really feel like talking about it, apparently.
Here's Stewart, in his own words:
I don't even worry about it, bud. I look at where I am at and I go to the next race. Everybody wants to analyze it. Nobody is worrying about it but you guys. You guys are the only ones that ask any questions about it. We don't care. It is what it is.
We know what it is to start with. It doesn't matter whether we like it or dislike it. This is what we have got. I don't think anybody has complaints. I don't think anybody cares really right now.
You go out and try to win races and get as many points each week as you can. It's not...it doesn't matter whether we tell we like it or dislike it. Nobody is going to change it, right? So why are we talking about it? It doesn't matter.
The funny thing here is that Stewart has a point. The differences between last year's points system and this year's points system are relatively minor, and not worth getting all worked up about early in the season.
But Stewart just has a way about him, particularly when a local TV guy asks him a question when Smoke is in one of his bad moods.
It's like the scene in Jurassic Park when they put a helpless goat on a chain as food for a T-Rex: It's just not gonna end well for the goat.
