  • Daytona: NASCAR Star Tony Stewart Snatches Brilliant Victory at Sprint Cup’s Coke Zero 400


    Posted about 2 years ago by Andrew De Lara

    Maybe it wasn’t the elusive Daytona 500 victory that Tony Stewart has been longing for. But it was brilliant, nonetheless. Executing a dramatic last-lap move to pass Matt Kenseth after starting way back in the 42nd position, Oakley’s NASCAR star powered his way to his 18th overall triumph at the Mecca of stock-car racing. “I’ll trade all of them for a win at the Daytona 500,” Tony said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, base layer, racing boots and racing gloves. “We just haven’t got the right one yet.” Nevertheless, he shined in the Coke Zero 400, securing his fourth Sprint Cup victory in Daytona and his 47th overall Sprint Cup win. He also moves up to 14th in all-time NASCAR triumphs, passing Buck Baker.
