"Today was more a day for me personally of winning at a track I haven't won at. For Steve, it's getting that first points win for us. I think it was a pretty cool two weeks," Stewart summed up.
"I was really happy for Darian last week to get that win," he added. "It's neat to see me and Steve get a win this week. Hopefully it will calm everybody down and get back to the task at hand. I'm glad both teams have come out strong."
Certainly the odds on Tony Stewart retaining his stunning Cup championship this season just shortened considerably. And no one would be surprised if Hamlin and Grubb didn't prove to be among his chief rivals when it comes down to the Chase later in the season.
