Allmendinger Win Overshadowed by Tragedy

On  a  somber day of  racing on Sunday,  A.J. Allmendinger became a first-time 
race  winner  in the Sprint  Cup Series after holding  off Marcos Ambrose in a 
two-lap shootout to the finish in the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen at Watkins Glen 
International.  Allmendinger's  maiden Sprint Cup  victory in his 213th career 
start   and  an  almost  guarantee  that  he  will  qualify  for  this  year's 
championship Chase made this a feel-good story less than 24 hours after three- 
time  series champion Tony Stewart struck and killed a competitor, 20-year-old 
Kevin  Ward Jr.  of Port  Leyden, N.Y.,  during a  sprint car  race at  nearby 
Canandaigua  Motorsports Park. On Sunday morning, Stewart opted not to compete 
in this 90-lap race at Watkins Glen. No charges are pending against Stewart at 
this time.
