NASCAR at Homestead Race Results: Tony Stewart Wins Race & Championship In Season Finale

Tony Stewart had the odds stacked against him multiple times throughout Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but overcame it all to score the win and his third series championship. 

Despite setbacks early in the race, Stewart put himself in position and was able to take control of the race from the dominant Carl Edwards. 

Restarting the race with 37 laps to go, Stewart made a bold move from the third spot to take the lead in a three-way battle with Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch. While Stewart pulled away with the lead, Edwards did his best to chase his competition down. 

Unable to do so, Stewart worked through traffic well, extending his lead throughout the final laps to score his fifth win of the 2011 Chase and earn his third NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. 

Although Edwards led the most laps, Stewart won the race and the pair tied in the final point standings. Stewart took the championship, however, thanks to his five wins on the season - all of which came in the Chase.
