The last time Tony Stewart was at Texas Motor Speedway, he was shooting off the guns in Victory Lane en route to the Sprint Cup championship. Can he do it again Saturday night?
Every week, our stats and analysis team compiles a breakdown of the wrecks at the next track on the schedule. Here's this week's takeaway:
Expect the wrecks at Texas to have even more impact than in your usual race.
Dating back to the start of 2008, there have been 18 wreck-related DNFs at Texas, the highest total of any non-restrictor plate track in that time.
So the stakes will be even higher than normal this weekend, with the high speeds of Texas making a disastrous finish a reality.
