Stewart has three wins at The Magic Mile, tied with Kurt Busch, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman for the series lead among active drivers. A visit to Victory Lane on Sunday would tie him with Jeff Burton for the track record. The No. 14 Chevrolet driver finished runner-up in the July New Hampshire race. He ranks fourth in average finish (11.0) and third in driver rating (103.0) among active competitors at New Hampshire.
Stewart currently holds the final transfer spot to the Chase’s Round of 12 following his 16th-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway.
