    Tony Stewart returned to victory lane for the first time in three years in vintage fashion - refusing to let Denny Hamlin steal a win at Sonoma Raceway away from him on the final lap Sunday. Now he's probably got a shot to run for a fourth NASCAR championship in his final season before retirement. It meant Stewart would have to win a race and crack the top 30 in points to have one last shot at glory before he stepped out of the No. 14 Chevrolet for good.

    NASCAR is unlikely to add a road course to the Chase for the championship schedule because it would be hard to get one moved into the Sprint Cup schedule. France also dismissed the idea of holding races on weeknights but didn't rule out moving the annual All-Star race from Charlotte Motor Speedway. ''There's a lot of interest in that very interesting event, and Charlotte has been good to us for a lot of reasons, but we'll always keep that open,'' France said.

    Christopher Bell had a few chances to get it right, and he made the most of the last of three re-starts. The 20-year-old Bell earned the 50th victory in the series for Kyle Busch Motorsports, tied for the most with Roush Fenway Racing, and the third this season by three drivers. Ben Rhodes, the pole sitter in the 200-mile race, finished second.
