Allstate 400 at the Brickyard - Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Home Sweet Home for Stewart at Indianapolis
Home Sweet Home. When Tony Stewart said earlier this month that he would trade his 2002 Cup championship for a win at the famed Brickyard track, most thought that he was crazy, but it showed just how important a win on his hometown track would be. Well now Stewart has both, he still has that championship trophy and he now has fulfilled his boyhood dream and won the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard Sunday at the hallowed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and as luck would have it, he took the points lead in the process. Stewart led three times today for a race-high 44 laps, the seventh time this season that he has led the most laps in an event, but had to hold off a hard charging Kasey Kahne as the race came to a close, beating Kahne by 0.794 seconds to the yard of bricks at the start/finish line. Stewart looked like it was going to be hard to be denied on this day until Kahne shot around the No. 20 car with just 26 laps to go, looking strong in doing so. Stewart wasnít worried, as he returned the favor with 10 laps remaining and was able to keep Kahne behind him the rest of the way with quite a few nifty moves to take home his 23rd career NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series victory. Stewart has now won four of the last six NEXTEL Cup races and took the lead atop the series standings, leading by 75 points over Jimmie Johnson, who held the points led going in to the Brickyard. Johnson had his share of problems at Indy, until finally hitting the wall very hard in turn four on lap 146 and ending his day in the 38th position. In the race, sophomore Kahne would celebrate his multi-year agreement with Evernham Motorsports with a second-place effort, while another sophomore in Brian Vickers would come home in third place. Jeremy Mayfield and Matt Kenseth rounded out the top five in the finishing order.
