Stewart’s Crew Wins Tissot Pit Road Award at Michigan Tony Stewart’s pit crew won the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.
It was the first Tissot win of the season for Stewart’s No. 14 crew and the 15th different winner of the weekly pit-road competition.
Stewart’s Office Depot/Old Spice Chevrolet spent the least amount of time on pit road – 205.605 seconds -- during the 200-lap, 400-mile race. The speedy pit stops helped Stewart post a sixth-place finish.
Placing second was Kevin Harvick’s Pennzoil/Shell Chevrolet – 208.766 seconds and third was Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 FedEx Toyota – 214.896.
“I’m really proud of Darian Grubb (crew chief) and the pit crew on this Office Depot/Old Spice Chevy,” said Stewart. “They’ve been doing an awesome job on pit road all year and our run at Michigan was another example of that.”
After 23 races Jeff Gordon’s No. 24 crew leads the Tissot competition with four wins while Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 crew is second at three wins.
