Richmond Repeat For Stewart

17911Jpg
RICHMOND, Va. - Tony Stewart kept his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series record at Richmond International Raceway perfect Thursday night with his second straight win in the Virginia is for Lovers 200. The defending Winston Cup champion came from 27th position to claim his first truck series win of 2003.

Stewart held off Robert Pressley for the win which was his fifth overall victory at the three-quarter mile Richmond track. In addition to his two truck series victories, Stewart has also visited victory lane at Richmond three times in the Winston Cup Series.

"I knew somebody was coming, but I didn't know if it was Jon Wood or Robert," said Stewart, who drove car owner Andy Petree's truck to the win. "Every time I came back from a restart, it would get worse than right before the restart. These guys on Andy Petree's team made this thing drive pretty good for a guy who only drives these things once a year."

Ted Musgrave finished third followed by Jon Wood and Dennis Setzer.

Rick Crawford, Brendan Gaughan, Bobby Hamilton, Travis Kvapil and Johnny Sauter completed the first ten finishers.

Hamilton and Gaughan were involved in a controversial incident as the raced across the finish line to take the checkered flag. Hamilton's Dodge clipped the left rear of Gaughan's truck sending the No. 62 into the wall.

Despite the hard ending to the night, Gaughan took over the series point lead from Kvapil and now leads by five points. Musgrave is third 39 points behind followed by Setzer and Crawford.

The Craftsman Truck Series now travels to New Hampshire International Speedway for next Saturday's New England 200.
