There got a shot at getting under rusty off of two over here, can’t quite make it happen, spinning down the back straightaway, no matter checkered flag in the wind, tony stewart, 10th career victory. First of the season that was elliot, sadler, spinning down the back stretch as a lot of wild things happened in the last two laps, well, that’s. Basically, what that’s all about when you stop them over there and get them lined up like that for a shootout that’s. Just kind of a preview of the next week’s race, winston coming up tony stewart’s first win came here at richmond in september 99 in his last three races, a win, a fourth and a second. This is rusty. Wallace he’s pointed jeff gordon they’ve been side by side ever since they checked checkered flag have a little conversation with each other yeah good job short tracks short sprint to the finish, equals short tempers. Yes, it does and of course, what happened there again gordon didn’t take off. He yeah. I think he spun his rear tires that let rusty get alongside of him going down in the first turn, got old tires on the cars and kind of got together down there. That’S, just one of those racing things i don’t believe anybody should be upset about that Music, donuts crawlers just smoke it up right down the straight away. I think he’ll never make it if he keeps whining for a blanket yeah. Oh me, holding three fingers out the window.
Tony stewart embarks the polish victory lap made famous by alan kulwicki gordon closed, but not enough, but he’s still accelerating. Last lap boy stewart went way wide down there, but oh a big pile up and johnny benson and dale jarrett go around and turn 11. and dale jarrett had worked his way back up the 17th after, overcoming that earlier spin down in that same form. Here we are on the final left, let’s see if we got anything left here guys tony stewart keeps her on the track. Tony picked up a lot of margin. There dale jarrett still stalled at turn. 11.. Now he finally gets going. This is one place it doesn’t matter, we’re on the white flag, left i’m sure the spotters will be telling them Music tearing the bodies. Music it’s turn 11.. This is the time you might as well go and drive her down in there robbie see what you got. Buddy he’s too far back larry unless tony locks it up and slides out of the groove uh. They know about terry labonte’s car here tony stewart. Look at robbie he’s got her smoking sideways back there off the corner and stewart will get his 11th career winston cup victory. He wins on a road course and only his fifth road course start.

He wins the sharpie 500 in bristol last lap changing position. Ricky wallace and rusty’s, obviously not happy at the tactics and dale jared spins down in the corner: tempers tempers right to the very end Music and the drivers and crew chiefs of those two cars have already been called to the big red trailer. How about a win for tony stewart marty, Music white flag is up final here in atlanta for the nappa 500 jerry nadu up on bobby labody by 4.3 seconds a little farther along and even if it runs out, he can coast at home, he’s wiggling the car.

Is he gon na have enough time off the final corner, nader’s gon na lose the race bobby labonte? Is the winner there’s your drama wow, jerry nade, who runs out of gas a half a lap from the checkered flag, Music bobby levati wins the race and jeff gordon has locked up the championship win in the last dozen races here for joe gibbs racing. You know he had a great car at daytona and didn’t get to show it. He blew up right on the start of the race dominated down in las vegas and harry seth’s, looking like he’s going to win this race today, Music, although i got to tell you, i wouldn’t, do junior’s going to dive that thing to the bottom down here with Me one or two to go and see if he can’t close that gap. This is it final lap turn four stewart. The high line junior the low line is coming here. He comes. He cuts the gap in half, but tony stewart scores his first super speedway win in over a year pretty dominant little performance there larry. Yes, it was junior for second, but how about that? Man that finishes third jimmy johnson and only his seventh winston cup starts. It was a great run for him today and uh chad.

No there’s got to be a car car they’ll, be coming to the white flag and it’ll, be over because bobby labonte will take the white and the caution flag together and then roll around to the checker matt kenseth tony stewart, dale jarrett dale, earnhardt jr, terry labonte, Ricky rudd bobby labonte has never won a winston cup race on a short.

He goes that was pretty early watkins glenn dj jones not able to get a run on robbie. Gordon looked like he had a brief look on him. I have not heard a penalty call on tony stewart, so the restart stands and now he’s half a lap away from the checkered flag, one more they time out of it, though, that was ricky craven. What a week it’s been for tony stewart spent much of this week in turmoil after the incident after indianapolis last sunday thought he might lose his job in this car. The fine from nascar defined from his sponsor.
