Ahhhhhh The Tony conundrum...
Q:First before I start to type let me ask... Who plays the Media like no other..
A: Tony Stewart.
He confirmed that Chevrolet is in his contract. As of right now. but trust me Tony is the same as any other driver on the circuit he does as he is told and follows the money. He will not weasel out of his contract with JGR when the switch is announced to Toyota. And as a driver he is under contract not with the brand but a race team. and it is up to JGR what Tony drives not Tony.
Tony is being Tony he is playing the Media.. Like 2 weeks before a announcement was made by Dale Earnhardt Jr Tony knew what was happening he played like it was nothing. Tony is a contracted driver for a cup team that runs Chevrolet and He also owns a sprint team running Mopars... hmmmm

Oh on another note....
You do not make a press conference type announcement if you have nothing to say. Also this isn't usually done when you are staying with the current manufacturer..
