Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart looks back on the 2012 season as a roller coaster ride that ended on the down side.

Stewart started the season as defending champion but nothing, it seems, went as planned as he finished ninth in the Chase.

“We didn’t have the season we wanted, but we also knew that it would be tough to duplicate the kind of run we had last year,” he said in a year-end review of the No. 14 Stewart Haas Racing Chevrolet team.
