Tony Stewart endured an up-and-down day in the Camping World RV Sales 301 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, and when the checkered flag dropped, Stewart was on his way up. The driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) rallied from 19th to seventh in the race’s last 50 laps to score his sixth top-10 this season and his 18th top-10 in 30 career Sprint Cup starts at New Hampshire.
“We went from holding our own at the beginning of the race to getting pretty beat up out there,” said Stewart, who qualified fourth, his best starting spot since winning the pole for the April 26 race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. “Finally, we just made a big change to get the front end of the car to bite. We honestly didn’t know how well it would work, but it beat running 20th.
