Rain makes Ste­wart’s sec­ond win of sea­son short and sweet

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

FON­TANA, CALIF. | Tony Ste­wart got his sec­ond NAS­CAR vic­tory of the sea­son Sun­day when rain short­ened the race at Auto Club Speed­way by 71 laps.

The de­fend­ing Sprint Cup cham­pion has won seven of the past 15 races in a re­mark­able stretch of dom­i­nance, in­clud­ing Las Ve­gas last month.

Ste­wart’s Chevro­let passed Kyle Busch 44 laps be­fore the race was stopped when the loom­ing rain clouds fi­nally halted a race run en­tirely on green flags to that point. The race was called off af­ter a short de­lay, giv­ing Ste­wart his 46th ca­reer win and his sec­ond at Fon­tana.

Busch fin­ished sec­ond, and Dale Earn­hardt Jr. added to his strong start to the sea­son in third.
