Stewart going for three in a row at Homestead

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Tony Stewart's bumpy ride through the politics of NASCAR has done little to hurt his performance on the track, and he'd like to prove that again by winning the Pennzoil 400. In 1999, Stewart was a record-setting rookie and well on his way to becoming one of the most popular drivers in the Winston Cup series. But he has spent much of the last two seasons hearing boos from the fans.

Will to win takes priority over injuries

LONG POND, Pa. - The look of pain and anguish on Dale Earnhardt's face remains as vivid today as it was that afternoon in 1996 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The man revered as the toughest of all was overwhelmed by pain. His face grimaced, and tears welled in his eyes as his crew pulled him from his Chevrolet shortly after the race started.
