TONY STEWART, NO. 14 OFFICE DEPOT/OLD SPICE CHEVROLET took three questions from media at Auto Club Speedway.

CHARLOTTE IS COMING UP NEXT WEEK. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO AT CHARLOTTE TO BE SUCCESSFUL? "It always seems like it's a battle of trying to get your car to cut through the center of the corner and keep the forward drive in it; it seems like it's a sacrifice of one or the other but the two ends are different. It seems like you can carry a lot more speed through (Turns) 1 and 2 and (Turns) 3 and 4 are a little more like 'thread the needle' type corners."

WHAT'S THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FALL AND SPRING RACES AT CHARLOTTE? "Well, sometimes there isn't one (big difference). You know they're spread out so far and they're at the beginning of summer and the end of summer, so a lot of times they can be very similar."

THEY ARE GOING TO ANNOUNCE A SECOND HALL OF FAME CLASS NEXT WEEK. DO YOU HAVE A CANDIDATE YOU'D REALLY LIKE TO SEE GET IN THERE? "I haven't even looked to see who is on the ballots yet. I've been a little busy. We've got this Chase-thing that we're doing."
