CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Two-time champion Tony Stewart likens NASCAR to professional wrestling and accuses it of using bogus caution flags to shape races. His biting comments were delivered on his weekly satellite radio show.
Stewart's appearance Tuesday night was his first since skipping
a post-race press conference in Phoenix. He dominated Saturday
night's race but lost after a late exchange of leads with winner
Jeff Gordon. Stewart says he refused interviews to avoid bashing
NASCAR after officials threw four cautions for debris on the track.
Stewart, who said he was fighting a fever and left the two-hour
show early, went on to say fans are complaining about debris
cautions and NASCAR isn't listening.
