JOLIET, IL (TheSpread) – Tony Stewart kicked off the Chase for the Championship right, as he won the GEICO 400 on Monday afternoon.

View Current NASCAR Odds

Stewart got his first victory in 33 starts on Monday. Stewart dealt with a migraine on Sunday, so he clearly benefited from a rain out on Sunday that pushed the race back a day. The victory now puts him in 2nd place in the point standings, seven points behind leader Kevin Harvick, who finished second on the day.

According to oddsmakers, Stewart had 12/1 odds to win Sunday’s race, meaning a $100 wager on Stewart will pay out an additional $1,200.

Harvick had a strong day, leading a number of laps, but was unable to hold off Stewart, who had a strong finish to get the win. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had a solid day as well, coming in third place for his fourth top-5 of the year.
