Tony Stewart has made it very easy to understand.

If he is anywhere near the lead in the final races and a spot in NASCAR’s Chase is on the line, it’s going to get tough up front.

“I would say the last couple races before the Chase starts, if we haven’t won a race, and we’re anywhere near the leader, he’s probably going to get roughed up a little bit, and that’s going to be no matter who it is,” Stewart said. “It’s not just me. Everybody is going to do it.”
