They don’t call Tony Stewart “Smoke” for nothing.  The fiery NASCAR driver showcased his explosive temper on Sunday.

Tony Stewart wasn’t exactly cheerful after finishing in 22nd place on Sunday in the Auto Club 400.  Stewart was hotter than the Fontana, CA temperature following the race.  Stewart confronted Joey Logano in the pits because he was upset that Logano blocked him following a restart.  Stewart then proceeded to drop numerous bad words on live TV.

Check out the video below.  FOX analyst Darrell Waltrip believes that Tony Stewart shouldn’t have been ticked off in the first place.  He’s got a point; they are racing after all.  Joey Logano finished in 3rd place.  Kyle Busch took the checkered flag after Denny Hamlin and Logano collided on the final lap.
