NASCAR At Martinsville Race Results: Tony Stewart Wins Third Chase Race Of 2011

Last weekend's race at Talladega was billed as the wild card race of the Chase, but Sunday's race at Martinsville Speedway saw more twists and turns in the Chase standings than anyone could have predicted. 

In a race littered with cautions from start to finish, Tony Stewart rebounded from struggles throughout the race to top Jimmie Johnson on the final restart to score his third win of the 2011 Chase. 

The championship picture was shuffled greatly as Matt Kenseth was involved in multiple incidents with Brian Vickers to finish the day in the 31st spot.

Carl Edwards struggled for much of the day, but was able to rebound late in the race to finish ninth. Brad Keselowski, meanwhile, had a late spin and dropped to fourth in the point standings.
