COLUMBUS — Urban Meyer wasn't just unhappy with his pass defense after last season.

"Everyone keeps talking about that," Hunt says while the cameras roll.

His Stewart-Haas Racing team will not pressure him to return and wins and trophies and a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship have all been put into perspective in a sport in which the show always goes on.
