Tony Stewart briefly led Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway. From laps 88 to 109, Stewart took control of the race and looked to be in line to score his third win of the season.
In the end he would come up short as Dale Earnhardt Jr., who was the strongest car in the field, retook control of the race and cruised to victory winning by five seconds over Stewart. For Earnhardt the win broke a 143 race winless streak and brought roars of approval from the crowd. But as other drivers stopped by victory lane to congratulate NASCAR’s most popular driver, Stewart headed to the media center.
Far from being happy for Earnhardt’s win, Stewart resorted to his tried and true sarcasm when asked about he felt about the victory. MORE>>>
