Tony Stewart takes Price Chopper 400 in Kansas
Tony Stewart staked a claim in the NASCAR Chase for the Championship by winning the Price Chopper 400 in Kansas. This clip brings us key activity from this past Sunday's event.
There are many fans and journalists who have been more than ready to write off Tony Stewart as a potential Nascar champion, partially due to this year's success of Nascar heavyweights Jimmie Johnson and Mark Martin. But this past Sunday, Tony Stewart proved that his love for the Sprint Cup is even bigger than his love for the Whopper by winning the Price Chopper 400 at Kansas Speedway.
This video clip pretty much condenses all the important moves and activity from the Price Chopper 400 in Kansas. One thing I like about this video is that not only do we get the requisite commentator analysis and banter, but we also get occasional headset feeds from the drivers as well. At the beginning we see the cars setting pace, and before you know it Jeff Gordon starts making moves and making his presence felt on the track against Greg Biffle (who led the most laps throughout the race). On a subsequent pit stop, Tony's crew chief Darian Grubb made a gutsy call by going with only a two-tire replacement on Stewart's car when most of his competitors got all four. Gordon was definitely gaining on Stewart late in the race, but Stewart manages to hold him off in order to get the checkered flag and claim victory. With this win, Tony Stewart moves into fourth place in point standings and remains a contender in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
