FLYING TIGER Nextel Cup champ Tony (the Tiger) Stewart (33) got some unexpected air time in the Busch series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway last Saturday. After tapping the car driven by Kenny Wallace, Stewart's vehicle flipped, landed on its roof and slid down the track. Stewart walked off unhurt. Martin Truex Jr. won the race.
