SRX: Stewart wins at South Boston

Tony Stewart held off Greg Biffle in the closing laps to take the Camping World SRX Series win at South Boston Speedway Saturday (June 25), in a night where tempers flared everywhere.

Bobby Labonte, Ryan Newman, and defending SRX winner Helio Castroneves completed the top five. NASCAR stars led the way as they swept positions one through four. Local all-star Peyton Sellers finished in the 10th position, the last car running on the track.

Heat One

Labonte led the field to the green, but Biffle quickly took the lead, with Andretti scooting through to second. Following a restart for the SRX Fun Flag, Biffle and Andretti had a spirited battle for the lead, but Biffle eventually prevailed to win the first heat.

Heat Two

The inverted field saw Tracy start on pole, with Castroneves alongside him. Tracy rocketed to the lead, but Newman, who started the heat in sixth, made his way to second in just a few laps and hounded Tracy for the next several laps.  Castroneves retook second from Newman about halfway through the heat. Moments later, Castroneves went into turn 1 too hard and spun Tracy to bring out the caution. Castroneves then held off Andretti and Newman to win heat two.
