I agree they will both strive to win the championship next year. But just because it hasn't been a crisis yet doesn't mean it won't or can't be. And most of the time guys don't race a full season as a lame duck. Did you forget that when Tony still had a year left with JGR he agreed to the deal with Haas and Coach Gibbs just released him from his contract rather than to have Tony drive a full year as a lame duck?

A lot of things happen on the track over the course of a year. We all know Paul Menard won't win the championship next year. Would Harvick help Stewart try to win a race instead of trying to help Menard next year? I'm in no way saying he would, but what happens if some on track incident gives that appearance?

And why do you think that is?
