Tony Stewart manage to held off Greg Biffle in the final laps to take the Camping World SRX Series victory at South Boston Speedway Saturday.
It was a Saturday evening where tempers flared all around the field which saw a angry Tony Stewart after the race grabbing and shoving Ernie Francis Jr.
The incident occurred towards the end of the second Heat at South Boston Speedway.
“I’m not just out here talking behind their back”- Dale Jr admits he isn’t ashamed of disappointing or frustrating NASCAR
“They’ve pissed off Uncle Tony right now. So they’re about ready to get a dose of it that they don’t want,” Stewart said. “Trust me, I know every dirty trick and got it in my bag. I mean, when you’re following somebody and a guy is on the outside, and as soon as he gets clear he just turns down across — that’s the dumbest s–t you can do, I swear to God.
“It’s like, I’m just done playing nice with everybody. Anybody that touches me, I’m touching back times five. I’m just done jacking with some of these clowns.”
Stewart afterwards did praise to Francis Jr. for his talent, which he said is why he was so angry, because Francis is “too talented to do dumb s–t like that.”
Ernie Francis Jr. was asked what happened that got Tony so upset.
“I’m not going to take that from him,” Francis said “I know he’s the boss, but you know, rubbing is racing out there.
