Stewart Haas Racing is making it’s much anticipated comeback to where they belong in the NASCAR cup series after a disappointing 2021 campaign where SHR failed to secure a win.

Last weekend Chase Briscoe got the team first victory in 2022 at Phoenix Raceway with teammate Kevin Harvick finishing P6.

Tony Stewart’s SHR had to face some serious criticism within the NASCAR community for the team poor performances put in by a top-quality team last season.

Stewart who was a special guest on this weeks’ SiriusXM NASCAR Radio finally spoke about how he felt about NASCAR fans attacking him and his family on public platforms for SHR Poor performances.

“From my standpoint, I’ve got to be a cheerleader and remind these guys that they can do it, that they have the talent, that we have the right group of people, and keep them motivated. Don’t let them get down, I have good people around me. I have great resources with Ford. We have a great OEM on the NHRA side that supports us on the drag race side and we have people in place to help me with all of this,” said Tony Stewart.

“I don’t have to be a one-man-band and I’m not the one that calls all the shots all the time. So people thinking that the cars are running bad, that I’m not doing my part, is BS. And it showed that this week,” Tony Stewart added.

“To hear people say that we’re not working hard enough is the polar opposite of the truth,” Stewart said. “I’ve never seen our group fight harder than what they are right now to try to find solutions to the problems and try to figure out how to get us out of the deficit that we’re in. But it is not for a lack of effort on anybody’s part and I can promise you on my part.”

Tony Stewart also said that it wasn’t because of complacency from him or the team last Cup Series season.
