BROWNSBURG, Ind. (March 9, 2020) – Despite a slight hiccup on Friday that forced the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion to restart at the tail of the field, Tony Stewart’s weekend in Louisiana was filled with success, ending his two-day, Bayou State Sprint Car Nationals campaign at Chatham Speedway with back-to-back top-ten outcomes, highlighting each of his United Sprint Car Series (USCS) starts with a fifth place performance on Saturday, March 7. Stewart started eighth on the feature grid, kicking-off the evening with a fourth-place run during his respective heat race, also starting eighth.
The Columbus, Indiana-native launched his weekend at Chatham Speedway with an impressive rally to finish eighth after restarting at the tail of the field. Stewart started on the outside of row three, but was forced to go to the tail after suffering from mechanical misfortune.
Including his Chatham Speedway results, Stewart is now six-for-six in the top-ten column in 2020, five of which top-five results.
“I think we were better than where we finished, but we have a long season ahead and plenty of time to put everything together,” Tony Stewart said, a five-time USCS winner in 2019. “I have a great team that works very hard and I’m more than confident that we’ll be up front very soon.”
