Stewart to retire from Cup after '16, Bowyer named replacement

It’s official: Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart will retire from driving the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet following the 2016 season. Stewart will be replaced behind the wheel by Clint Bowyer, though he will remain co-owner of the four-car SHR squad and after his retirement will dabble in other forms of motorsports.

Stewart, 44, made the announcement Wednesday at SHR’s shops in Kannapolis, North Carolina, during a press conference with his partner, team co-owner Gene Haas.

Another driver that's had a poor season.  I don't even think he's in the chase at this point.

I saw this coming. Stewart hasn't been the same since he broke his leg a couple of years ago. I grew up in racing, but as a Gordon fan I expect to be much less engaged after this year.

Deplorable since 2016

Ooooh, Kyle Busch is angry!

Lots of cautions.  Too bad about Earnhardt.
