Tony Stewart unfazed by extra speed at MIS

Don't count Tony Stewart among the drivers impressed by 200-mph laps being turned at Michigan International Speedway.
"This is not that fast," the driver of the No. 14 Chevrolet said. "We ran a lot faster in Indy cars. It's fast for stock cars, but the good thing is I don't know if it is the asphalt mix or if it is the tire the Goodyear has brought. The cars are stable out there even though we are running quick lap times."
Stewart was a rising IndyCar star when he switched to stock car racing. He has won two NASCAR Sprint Cup championships.
"No, not when you ran 247 miles per hour in an Indy car at Indy in rookie orientation," Stewart said when asked if he was excited to go 200 mph at MIS. "We've been around that number at Daytona and Talladega. It's just kind of cool to do it with an open motor at 200 miles an hour."
