Stewart didn’t win a race until the Chase for the Championship last season, but he led 127 laps in this race and made a late pass of Jimmie Johnson to secure the victory, his first of the season.

According to oddsmakers, Stewart had 7/1 odds to win this championship, meaning a wager of $100 will pay out an additional $700.
