Tony Stewart is known around the NASCAR garages as “Smoke”. Jimmie Johnson is known as “5-Time”, a reference to the number of times Johnson has won stock car racings series championship. Sunday afternoon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway “Smoke” slipped through a crack in “5-times” defense and drove away with the victory in the Kobalt Tools 400.

It was no surprise to see both Johnson and Stewart contending for the victory. Johnson had qualified well only to crash his primary car in practice. This sent Jimmie to the back of the pack for the start of the race. Stewart unloaded fast and stayed that way all weekend.

Although it did take some creative pit strategy to put Tony in position with under 50 laps to go to take the lead. Johnson placed second in the event followed by Greg Biffle, Ryan Newman and last year’s winner Carl Edwards. Three races into this year’s Sprint Cup season the points lead is held by Greg Biffle. Stewart jumped up 8 places in the standings with his victory on Sunday.
