Stewart Maneuvers Tricky Triangle

LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Tony Stewart has won his first Cup points
race as a team owner, coming from the rear of the field to win at
Pocono Raceway.

The Sprint Cup points leader had to start at the back of Sunday's race because of a practice accident forced him into his backup car. Then Stewart gambled he could drive the final 41 laps without a pit stop and it paid off, helping snap a 19-race winless streak dating to last season.

Stewart won the All-Star race last month for Stewart-Haas Racing, and this victory only stamped himself as a true threat to win his third Cup title.

Stewart is the first owner/driver to win a points race since Ricky Rudd at Martinsville in 1998. Carl Edwards was second, followed by David Reutimann, Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman.
