The article presents information related to stock car driver Tony Stewart. He hates testing his racecar. He drew criticism for blowing off testing before the Daytona 500. In Stewart's mind, going fast doesn't matter, winning does. And his attitude in winning the Nascar Nextel Cup altered his legacy as one of the most cantankerous racers ever. His car control is so extraordinarily splendid he rarely gets credit for being as smart as he is. At Homestead, he bided his time, waiting for his car to come around. INSETS: A tale of two titles;Johnson remains just good enough to come up short.
