If A.J. Says It's Okay...

Tony Stewart is NASCAR old school which means, among other things, that he lives to race. Even if it might kill him. He'll run short tracks in the middle of the week when the big races, for the big money, happen on Sunday and the prudent, strictly business approach would be to stay out of any car until then. So, as the AP's auto racing writer, Jenna Fryer, reports:
If Stewart required validation, after putting his team and its sponsor's fortunes at risk, he got it from his childhood hero, four-time Indianapolis 500 winner A.J. Foyt [who] defended Stewart on Tuesday for sticking to his passion and being a true “racer.”
“He ain’t no prima donna and life is short, and we don’t know how we are going to die or what’s going to happen," Foyt said.
