Last week in Vegas one of my blogger buddies had the wonderful opportunity to interview Tony Stewart. Man what a thrill that must have been. I would have been a nervous wreck, but she did a great job and brought back with her a great interview. Prior to her interview she put out a call for questions that we might want to ask Tony if we were interviewing him. Wow..this was a hard request for me, but I wanted to give a least one question for her. I know Tony is a racer who respects the history of his sport and so I thought this is where I want my question to go. I mentioned this opportunity to Postman and told him what question I submitted and he thought he would be a good question. So without further ado…my question and Tony’s answer.
Amy: If you could go back in time, what decade would you be a racer in?
Tony: Oh man. I would say….probably the sixties and seventies. It was a pretty cool era in the sport because there wasn’t all the technology involved. It was really about car owners that sat there with a piece of paper and came up and drew ideas. There weren’t the computers to create the ideas for them. Just racing was a lot simpler then. I mean guys would race Indy and run Daytona. To get to race with someone like AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti and guys like that would be pretty cool.
It sounded like he was intrigued by the questions. Of course as a die-hard Tony fan, he answer did not surprise me. AJ Foyt is his racing idol. I would have loved to have seen Tony race against AJ and Mario. Wow…what a race that would have been.

Thanks Amy for a little more insight to our favorite driver and also for using my question.
