It’s probably not a good idea to piss off your teammate, especially when he happens to be your team owner.
Just ask World of Outlaws driver Steve Kinser.
Kinser, who drives the No. 11 entry for Tony Stewart Racing, made contact with Stewart during Saturday night’s Kings Royal main event at Eldora Speedway. Stewart flipped hard on the frontstretch, ending his night prematurely.
Stewart climbed from his car unscathed but was extremely unhappy with Kinser, calling him an "a**hole" in front of the packed grandstands.
"I just had to deal with my a**hole teammate Steve Kinser," Stewart said over the PA system. "It’s about normal for him… he already tried to run over us once in the main. The a**hole finally got us the second time."
It’s unclear if this was a heat of the moment reaction from Stewart, or if there are serious issues with the team. Regardless, there probably won’t be too many happy faces during the Monday morning meeting.
