The Interview
Tony Stewart

Stewart will race in the Daytona 500 on Sunday.

Dan Patrick: Are you enjoying the fact that your long hair is upsetting some people?

Tony Stewart: I love it. Just the fact that they keep raising such a big stink about it keeps making me want to grow it longer and longer—just to make them more upset. I've never seen any sport where a topic like this is actually a topic.

DP: This may be sacrilegious to you, but if they remade Smokey and the Bandit, would you be the Bandit?

DP: If I said Smokey and the Bandit begins shooting this week or you drive in the Daytona 500....

TS: I'm going to shoot the movie with you.
