*CG locator Martinsville
April The two-time Cup champ says
NASCAR is a lot like professional
wrestling in the way it tries to shape
the outcome of races.

Stewart also accuses NASCAR of
using bogus caution flags to shape
races. Now this is something longtime
fans have suspected for years.

Stewart made his comments on his
weekly satellite radio show last night.
Stewart points to Sunday's race at
Phoenix as the most recent proof of his
claim. Four caution flags were thrown
for debris on the track.

Stewart did not mince words
whatsoever saying quote "I can't
understand how long the fans are going
to let NASCAR treat them like they're
stupid before the fans finally turn on
NASCAR.

during the upcoming 2007 season, and
today the team unveiled the new
uniforms they will wear in a special
throwback game honoring the sqaud from
1933.

The powder blue and yellow colors
came from Sweden 75 years ago - and are
exactly what the first Eagles' team
wore 75 years ago. Jevon Kearse and
David Akers had the honor of modeling
