Tony Stewart needed a good run, not a great run, not even a win. All the co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing and three time NASCAR champion needs is a good solid finish. He almost had that Sunday at Richmond in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota Owners 400, but a late race tangle with Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended with Stewart’s Chevy in the garage, Stewart scored with a DNF in 41st place and Earnhardt Jr. angry.

Stewart started the day in 13th and spent some time inside the top ten. At one point he was as high sixth and as the laps wound down it looked as though Stewart might finally get a much needed solid finish.  It all ended 39 laps from the finish.

On lap 361 Stewart was racing Earnhardt for position just outside the top 10. MORE>>>
