Take a look at these Dover International Speedway pictures from the NASCAR Cup Series event
Victory lane was the last place Tony Stewart expected to end up when he strapped himself into his No. 14 Code 3 Associates/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS for the FedEx 400 benefitting Autism Speaks NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. Dont forget to take a look at the Dover International Speedway pictures below.
After all, winning from the 22nd spot on the starting grid in a racecar with which he’d struggled through practice and qualifying this weekend on a fierce, 1-mile concrete oval at which almost half (47) of the previous 86 Sprint Cup Series winners started no farther back than the front two rows, felt like nothing short of a monster task.
But Stewart, crew chief Steve Addington and the entire Code 3 Associates/Mobil 1 pit crew of for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) simply ganged up on the track affectionately known as the “Monster Mile.” Their late-race strategy call put the No. 14 Chevrolet in position to win, and Stewart, the three-time Sprint Cup champion, made a late-race pass and never looked back until he took the checkered flag for his long-awaited first victory of the season.
