LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - There has to be a simple solution for all the drivers who can't stretch their fuel to finish line. Follow the No. 14's lead.
Pit when Tony Stewart pits.
Take the same number of tires and make the adjustments his team makes.
It has to be that easy, right?
While Chase drivers like Jeff Gordon and Denny Hamlin have felt pain at the pump, Stewart has perfected the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship's recipe for success, taking the checkered flag the first two playoff races at Chicagoland Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
He's positioned in first and with a third championship in sight because crew chief Darian Grubb has called all the right moves.
