Tony Stewart is clearly not using NASCAR’s Danica Patrick for her skills behind the wheel. He is using the Godaddy cover-girl t pad his bank account. After seeing what Stewart did to rid his team of the services of what once was hie good friend Ryan Newman, his motives for keeping Patrick employed have become clear.
Newman is one of the better drivers at Stewart Haas racing. He can lap Patrick in just about every start the two of them make. The main problem is he isn’t cute and he doesn’t pose half naked to bring in the dollars. How Stewart can say keeping Patrick isn’t about the money after what he pulled with Newman this season, without cracking up laughing is anyone’s guess.
When Tony Stewart launched his ownership career it was Newman who left a very good racing team. He left Penski one of the most funded team’s in all of motor sports. This was a professional organization that Newman left to help his friend make a name for himself and now he is not only out of a job, he was lied to.
Stewart talks out of both sides of his mouth. He tells Newman they can’t afford another team an then a month or two later they have announced the launching of another team. Somehow this is a case of reverse discrimination. Newman was let go because he isn’t cute enough to bring in the money Danica Patrick can bring in.
Newman is probably a little heated right about now knowing that Patrick will have a ride on the Stewart Haas team and he won’t ….Who could blame him?
