Inasmuch as we like the current crop of NASCAR drivers, Tony Stewart's our favorite. He's still got a bit of the old-school wild-boy streak in him; punching reporters, rescuing greyhounds and racing midgets in his spare time. The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette's Ben Smith checks in with Stewart, as well as the midget-racing scene, at the 50th anniversary Rumble in Indiana. It's one of the better pieces of newspaper motorsports coverage we've read in a while.
