Richmond May Not Be Stewart's Favorite Track After Saturday Night's Race

Tony Stewart said earlier in the week that Richmond is his favorite track.  Saturday night, that track was not kind to Stewart as he finished the Crown Royal Heath Calhoun 400 in 23rd place, after struggling all night.

Although Crew Chief Darian Grubb worked tirelessly, the Office Depot/Old Spice Chevrolet Impala was a handful throughout the 400-lap race around the .75-mile oval.

“We’re just not where we need to be right now,”  said Stewart, who now finds himself 15th in the championship standings with 1,160 points, a loss of one position that puts him 307 points behind new series leader Kevin Harvick.

Stewart fell out of the top-12 drivers to 14th last week at Talladega and dropped one more spot to 15th in the standings with the Richmond run.

Kyle Busch was the winner of the race as he jumped ahead of Jeff Gordon, who finished second, on a late-race restart.
