Agree To Disagree

Nearly three months to the day Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth were at it again.

The feud that started between the two at the Daytona 500 was rekindled Saturday night in the NEXTEL All-Star Challenge when the pair was involved in an accident that both saw as the other's fault.

The controversial incident happened in the final segment of Saturday's night's $1 million to win spectacle. Only 18 laps from the finish, Stewart worked his way into the inside of Kenseth as they raced through the first turn.

They made contact with each other first and the outside wall next.

Both were done for the night. Racing anyway.

"At the finish line, I could see that Tony was getting a run and I was going to try to stay on the bottom," Kenseth said. "Maybe he was a way in there and I squeezed him off. I didn't think he could have got in there that good to have that good of a run, but he must have."

But Stewart, surprise, saw things a little differently.

"I had a pretty definitive view from what I saw. I got a run on him, at least he got that part right," Stewart complained. "That's a pretty demented view in my opinion. I think he screwed up on this one. If he thinks I did that and that was my fault, he's screwed up in the head."

But Stewart wasn't done with the incident and confronted Kenseth's crew chief Robbie Reiser in the garage area, an exchange that needed help being broken up.

The accident and verbal sparring was very reminiscent of the pair's tangle in Daytona, when Stewart made contact with Kenseth in the Daytona 500, an incident that wound up with Kenseth in the wall.

"Tony is always mad at somebody," Kenseth said. "I'm not going to go out and do the name-calling like he does every week. He's always mad at somebody.

"If he was under there and I cut him off and made a mistake, then I made a mistake. There's nothing else I can do about that right now."

Tony, your reply?

"If he's going to complain about me being under there," he said. "I was there, and any other weekend, that might be acceptable, but it's the Nextel All-Star Crashfest."

Stay tuned.
