NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin is in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, but by no means does he consider his comeback from health issues and struggles on the track complete. In fact, hes hoping for the best ending possible.
Tony Stewart said he never considered leaving racing. And if you know Stewart at all, this doesn't surprise you. Stewart is 43, unmarried and completely consumed with racing. To leave it entirely? He wouldn't know what to do with himself.
A subdued Tony Stewart said Monday he never thought about giving up driving race cars in the past seven weeks after a car he was driving struck and killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. during a dirt track race in New York. But he said he still thinks constantly about what he called a “100 percent accident.”

that's racin' (phrase): Expresses frustration or emotion.
1. When a small part costing just a few dollars fails and stops a $150,000 race car, that's racin'.
2. When you race a competitor for 500 miles and lose to him by just a few feet, that's racin'.
3. When a hot dog wrapper blows out of the stands, gets caught across the air vent on the front of your car and causes your engine to overheat, that's racin'.
