Stewart scores 12th points-paying NASCAR Cup Series victory for SHR by winning the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway by 1.092 seconds over second-place Carl Edwards. It is Stewart’s second Cup Series win at Texas and his 43rd career Cup Series win. And with the victory at Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 30, it marked the ninth time Stewart has scored back-to-back wins in his Cup Series career, with the previous occurrence coming just a month earlier when he won back-to-back races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway.
