Tony Stewart finally broke into the winners circles yesterday, capturing the Sheetrock 400. It was his first win in eons (well, actually 20 races) and it put Stewart in 6th place in the Nextel Cup standings. Stewart has been running fairly well but not winning and if not for a flat tire ala Jimmie Johnson he could still be sucking wind.
The next 7 weeks will finalize the Chase for the Nextel Cup. NASCAR fans looking to cash in on the excitement should start thinking about the following NASCAR tickets: Allstate 400 (Next week at Indianapolis), Pennsylvania 500, Sharpie 500, California 500, and of course, Chevy Rock and Roll 400 tickets, my personal favorite. (I just can’t pass up the smell of burning rubber combined with rock and roll. Call me sentimental.)
