Tony Stewart Climbs up the Chase Ladder with Second Top-10 Finish

Tony Stewart, after a 22nd place finish in the season-opening Daytona 500, served notice Sunday that he is back in the hunt for another championship as he posted a second straight top-10 finish, just three races into the 2010 season. 

Stewart started ninth at Las Vegas Speedway and ran in the top-10 all day. “We ended up seventh, which is alright, but you always want more,” said Stewart, who finished ninth in last Sunday’s race in Fontana, Calif. “I struggled on restarts. It took a couple laps to get going, and when you lose so much time here on restarts like that, it makes for a long day.”

The Las Vegas finish moved Stewart into the top-12 drivers for the first time this year. Look for the Stewart-Haas owner/driver to improve on his 11th place in the standing as the series moves to Atlanta Motor Speedway where Stewart has two wins in the Sprint Cup Series.
