With a second-place finish in the Autism Speaks 400 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, Stewart takes the lead in the NASCAR Cup Series championship standings by 46 points over second-place Jeff Gordon. It marks the first time a driver/owner has led the points since Alan Kulwicki beat Bill Elliott for the championship on Nov. 15, 1992 at Atlanta Motor Speedway – a span of 556 races.

Newman is fifth in points, marking the first time both SHR drivers have been in the top-five in points.
