Reaction from all corners of the racing world continues to pour in offering reaction to Tony Stewart's official release from the final year of his Joe Gibbs Racing contract. Here's the latest, but certainly not the last, batch of stories:

We knew it was coming… Today it was announced that Tony Stewart will be let out of his contract with Joe Gibbs Racing at the end of the season. Shocking! -- Jaynelle Raymon of the Arizona Star-Net

Two-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart is about to get another NASCAR title: Boss. -- Tony Fabrizio of the Tampa Tribune

Ending one of NASCAR's most successful marriages, Sprint Cup Series driver Tony Stewart said today he plans to leave Joe Gibbs Racing after this season. -- Jim Peltz of the Los Angeles Times

I totally understand why Tony Stewart is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing at the end of this season. Tony is a racer — he isn't one of those guys that I would ever envision leaving racing only to hang up his helmet and go fishing. -- Larry McReynolds of FOX

It will take some time, years perhaps, before it's clear whether Tony Stewart leaving the safety of Joe Gibbs Racing to become a part owner of the much smaller Haas CNC Racing, is either the start of a new era or a big error. -- Richard Huff of the New York Daily News
