Tony Stewart: Driver Gets A Black Eye In Fight Down Under
Tony Stewart's fiery reputation in the NASCAR world has flared up yet again, this time manifesting itself in an alleged altercation with a Sydney, Australia track owner that caused Stewart to hit the man with his helmet, while the track owner left Stewart with a black eye.
The track owner is named as Brett Morris, the co-owner of the Sydney Speedway.
Apparently Stewart only participated in the pre-race heat, and then was conspicuously absent from the subsequent portions of the racing night, be it the semi-feature and ultimate feature races.
It's not clear in any reports what Stewart and Morris ultimately argued over, but the story goes that Stewart vociferously complained to Morris about something, which wasn't particularly constructive, as it ended up with Stewart whacking Morris with his racing helmet.
The 46 year old Morris responded in kind by swinging back at the esteemed NASCAR racer known for his short temper and confrontations with fellow drivers, leaving Stewart with an apparent black eye.
Apparently police briefly detained Stewart and questioned him, at least according to the reports from Sydney, but he was ultimately not charged with any crime and fully released. His PR people would not confirm the story as of yet, saying they have yet to speak to Stewart about the incident in full detail.
