Tony Stewart Stays Out Of Early Carnage, Dominates SRX At Eldora Winning Both Heats And The Feature

Tony Stewart drove around Eldora Speedway like he owned the place during Thursday's SRX event at his Rossburg, Ohio dirt track.


Stewart led all 75 laps of the main event to claim his first SRX win of the season.



With the win, Stewart is now a perfect two-for-two in SRX races at the track that he owns. The win was his fifth overall SRX victory and his fourth win at a dirt track. In addition to his two wins at Eldora, "Smoke" also has victories at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 and Knoxville Raceway. The only dirt track SRX race he hasn't won came last year at Sharon Speedway, where he finished second.


Stewart won both heat races to claim the pole for Thursday's race and dominated the main event before needing to hold off a hard-charging Hailie Deegan to claim the win. Deegan was in a back-up car after being involved in a six-car crash during the first heat race.


SRX points leader Ryan Newman ran a consistent race to finish third, while former NASCAR Cup Series champions Bobby Labonte and Matt Kenseth completed the top five.
