Stewart had the aid of a late caution flag that allowed him to get up front and pull away from a stacked group, led by Matt Kesneth, who seemed to have the car to beat all night. Down the final stretch, a wreck broke out that allowed Stewart to pull away for the win. Kenseth ended up third.

According to oddsmakers, Steward had 12/1 odds to win coming into this week’s race, meaning a wager of $100 will pay out an additional $1,200.

Stewart came from 42nd place to win the race. He ended up beating out Jeff Burton for first. Saturday’s win pushes Stewart up four spots in the standings to fifth. He is now 84 points behind leader, Matt Kenseth. Stewart is just one of two drivers with three wins this year.
