FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Tony Stewart won another round in the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, edging points leader Carl Edwards on Sunday in the ``Texas Title Fight'' to close the gap with two races left.
Stewart raced to his second straight victory, and fourth in the eight Chase races, finishing just ahead of Edwards at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked track. Stewart cut his points deficit from eight to three with a winning margin of 1.092 seconds.
The series returns next week to Phoenix, where the track has been reconfigured and resurfaced since Edwards and Stewart finished 1-2 there in March in the third race this season, and then to Homestead-Miami Speedway for the finale. Edwards won both races at the end of last season.
