Tony Stewart will be happy when you stop asking how he feels

   Speedweeks was NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Tony Stewart's first time back in the car since breaking two bones in his right leg last summer in a dirt track race.

   Obviously, along the way Stewart has been asked how his leg has felt. Stewart was asked yet again on Friday at Phoenix International Raceway.

   Here was his response:

   “I’ll be honest, I’ll be more happy when everybody quits asking me how I feel. I’m not 100 percent. I’m not going to be 100 percent for a while. It was fine. There wasn’t any drama, same as we said for the shootout, same as we said for the qualifying race and same as we said after the (Daytona) 500," he said.

   "I appreciate everybody checking on me, but it’s not going to change in a week. It wasn’t a big drama, everything is fine.  Everything is fine in the car this week so far. Hopefully, we will be able to talk a year from now about how far we have come.”
