Tony Stewart has won the 2011 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup. Stewart actually tied with Carl Edwards in total points, but had won more races and was awarded the championship.
A disappointing 20th place finish in today’s Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway for Brad Keselowski in the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger dropped last year’s Nationwide Series Champion to fifth in the points standings.
Car trouble sent Kurt Busch to the garage on Lap 4 and he wasn’t able to return until Lap 51. The breakdown cost Busch not only any chance of a good finish to the race, it cost him a top-ten finish in the Sprint Cup driver standings. Busch finished 34th and dropped three spots to 11th in the points battle.
