Dover: Cup results

3 June 2013

He came seemingly from nowhere, but once the victory was in the offing there was simply no stopping Tony Stewart who passed Juan Pablo Montoya to deny the Colombian a maiden oval win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.

The FedEx 400 win for Stewart was the three-time Cup champion's 48th victory in 513 series starts and his first win in 2013. It's the third time that he's won at the Dover International Speedway 'Monster Mile.'

The Joe Gibbs Racing team had dominated the first half of the race, but an engine failure for Matt Kenseth and a mechanical failure for Denny Hamlin sending him into the wall 20 laps from the end left fourth-place Kyle Busch as the team's only driver still running at the end. Another Toyota driver, Michael Waltrip Racing's Martin Truex Jr., also suffered an engine failure during the afternoon.

After a shaky start to the afternoon, Jimmie Johnson had been one of the strongest runners but was undone by a penalty for jumping the final restart, which he strongly disputed. Even so, Johnson finished 17th and continues to lead the point standings, now by a margin of 30 points over Carl Edwards.
