Tony Stewart Wins Sunday’s Kobalt Tools 400 – Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Tony Stewart can cross another race track off his bucket list! The defending Sprint Cup Champion was simply too good on re-starts, holding off Jimmie Johnson by about a half second to win Sunday’s Kobalt Tools 400 from Las Vegas Motor Speedway for his first career win at the southwest desert track!
Greg Biffle picked up his third, third place finish in the first three races and sits atop the Cup standings for the first time since 2005. Stewart’s teammate Ryan Newman finished third with Carl Edwards completing the top five with Clint Bowyer, Paul Menard, Jamie McMurray, Trevor Bayne and Dale Junior rounding out the top ten. Junior led 70 of the first 73 laps!
On Saturday Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led the final 50 laps pulling away from veteran Mark Martin during a final 39 lap green flag run to the finish to win the Sams Town 300.
