2009: A year to quit
ESPN's Marty Smith has reported that Tony Stewart is trying to opt out of the final year of his contract with Joe Gibbs Racing. His current deal is set to expire at the end of the 2009 season, but Stew reportedly wants released after the conclusion of this year.
Stewart Joins Nazi fetish-enthusiast Max Mosley, who recently said he plans to leave his FIA post after his term expires in 2009.
So... Mosley wants to stick around until his deal expires. And Stewart wants to cut out early, but both have 2009 marked as when they want to enact their respective changes.
Maybe Joe Gibbs and the FIA should just arrange a trade. Mosley to the Home Depot Toyota, Stewart to La Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile. We're not sure how Mosley's car would look painted in Home Depot Orange.
