Stewart downplays helmet-tossing incident


Tony Stewart joked Tuesday that his two-handed toss of his helmet at Matt Kenseth was “not bad for a 41-year-old who doesn’t work out.” Aside from that, Stewart (pictured right) said he’s not expecting any drama between the two drivers despite promising to run over Kenseth every chance he gets this season. “You get over that stuff. It’s been part of racing for as long as I can remember and that won’t be the last time you see two drivers have a disagreement,” Stewart said, adding he’ll only run over Kenseth “if I need to.” The three-time NASCAR champion lost his temper Saturday night at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway after contact with Kenseth caused him to wreck as they were racing for the lead. – Associated Press
