It’s the summer time and no one is hotter heading into Sunday’s Lenox Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway than Tony Stewart. Stewart is fresh of his third win of the season last week at Daytona and is looking to add to that win total this week.
History is on Stewart’s side in the coming weeks; 24 of his 47 career Sprint Cup wins have come between June 1 and the September race in Richmond, just eight events from Sunday. He was second in this race last year and won in the fall, the last time the series visited here.
“Loudon was awfully good for us last year,” Stewart said. “To start 1-2 and finish 1-2 in this race last year, and then to come back in the fall and have Ryan (Newman) win the pole again and for us to win the race, it really doesn’t get much better than that. When you run that well someplace, you love coming back. We had a dream weekend last July at New Hampshire and, really, a dream year. Now, we’ll just try and duplicate it.” MORE>>>
