Smoke's comments on Newman's win.

Ryan Newman celebrates his win with his daughter
Tony Stewart had his car owner's hat on Sunday after Ryan Newman's win at the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Speedway. Here are some of what he said.

“Oh my God, what a dream. I’ve been waiting for the day we could get Ryan in victory lane at a big one like this. Man, it’s just awesome,” said Stewart, a two-time Brickyard 400 winner (2005 and 2007). “Ryan did an awesome job getting on the pole and an awesome job all day. He and Matt Borland (crew chief) and everyone on the Quicken Loans team executed perfectly. I’m proud of all of our guys because we had a solid day too. Our Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevy was quick. We had great Hendrick horsepower. You look up at the board there and see six cars in the top-seven that are Hendrick engines. That pretty much tells you where the power is.”

“We had really good power all day long, and there were a couple of scenarios in particular where I noticed how good it was,” Stewart said. “Mobil 1 is more than just a sponsor at Stewart-Haas Racing. They’re a technical partner and having them aligned with us is a real advantage. We saw it today. You’ve got to get down the straightaways here. You’re not going to pass somebody on the outside in the corners. You have to get off the corner and get down the straightaway. Mobil 1 is a big asset, and having Hendrick power under the hood is a big asset.”

    1. If you don't understand the sport, don't comment. Harvick is replacing Newman because of sponsorship...end of story!

    2. I agree what's wrong with you Tony, Keeping Danica who is lucky to finish a race and getting rid of Ryan who can actually win races. I think you have flipped too much, let Danica go, KEEP RYAN he will go to a good team.

  2. I think that Tony needs to look at the final results of the races this year and the past record of Ryan. I don't think Danica! will ever be half the driver that Ryan is.

    1. I think that Ryan is a great driver, but Danica has a 25 million a year sponsor. She would still at JR motorsports, but the sponsor wanted to be in cup.
      Kevin will bring big sponsor dollars to SHR.

  3. Sponsors dictate drivers, not owners.

  6. Newman will find a good home.
    Danica is a decoy for NASCAR.

  7. Tony would surely have a winning team if he keeps Ryan!!!!
    Just think about it....next year it would be Stewart, Newman
    and Harvick!!!!!!!! Now that would be a winning team!!!!!!
    Let Patrick get the new ride or just stay in Nationwide Series!
    The race Sunday was an awesome one for sure! Way to go Ryan!

  8. It is great to see a winner like Ryan finely get a win this year. It is good for the sport to have a winner other than J. Johnson.

  9. DP has nothing to do with the change at SHR. Harvick is replacing Newman because he brings full sponsorship. Newman is very light on sponsorship....his ability was not the issue.

  10. Agree with all comments. My thought at the end of the race was "Take that, Smoke!" I have been a Rocket Man fan from the beginning of his career and only cheered for Stewart because he was a team mate. Love Danica and wish her well but disappointed in the team changes. All you SUPERIOR teams out there....here's Ryan, bid often and bid high. He is worth it!

  13. Ryan, Smoke and Mr. Hendrick need to have a full on conversation. Ryan is amazing with Hendrick Power. Maybe somehow, Hendrick, Gordon, Johnson and Ernhardt need to make an expansion team together and get Ryan and a few others on board. They have the money and power to do so. Expand NASCAR!
