Stewart Home At Lowes

CONCORD, N.C. - Tony Stewart took the lead from Ryan Newman with seven laps to go and drove to victory in Saturday night's UAW-GM Quality 500 at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Stewart picked up his second win of the 2003 season and first at Lowe's Motor Speedway by overcoming a 7.9-second lead by Newman with 36 laps to go. The defending Winston Cup Series champion wheeled his Home Depot Chevrolet around Newman after a side-by-side duel for two laps and cruised to the checkered flag.

"It's about...time the fastest car wins a race instead of all this...fuel mileage and tire (stuff)," Stewart said.

Jimmie Johnson finished third followed by Bill Elliott and Jeff Gordon.

Bobby Labonte, Jamie McMurray, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Kevin Harvick completed the first ten finishers.

Kenseth's eighth place finish helped him increase his series point lead over Harvick to 267. Earnhardt, Newman and Johnson round out the first five in the standings.

"It was a good finish for us," Kenseth said. "It's good to get going again. I had fun racing with Harvick tonight, he was messing with me."

The Winston Cup Series now travels to Martinsville Speedway next Sunday afternoon.
