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.
