Smoke Wins Wild Race At The Glen

By  | 

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Tony Stewart took advantage of Jeff
Gordon's late gaffe to win the Centurion Boats at The Glen.
Gordon led a race-high 51 laps and appeared to have his tenth
road course victory in hand before he spun out on his own with two
laps to go. Stewart spun out in the same place while leading
earlier in the race, dropping him to 19th.
It was Stewart's third victory in four races, and sixth on a
road course.
Denny Hamlin finished second, followed by Jimmie Johnson and Ron
Fellows. Gordon was ninth.
Dale Earnhardt Junior blew an engine on lap 63 and finished
42nd. Earnhardt had been trailing Kurt Busch by seven points for
the 12th and final spot in the Chase.
