After winning at Sonoma Raceway, it took only one more week for Tony Stewart to enter the top 30 in the Sprint Cup points standings and become eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Stewart finished 26th in the Coke Zero 400 and is three points ahead of Brian Scott in 31st.
Kasey Kahne and Jamie McMurray, who were involved in the 22-car wreck on Lap 90 of the Coke Zero 400, fell out of the top 16 on the Chase grid. McMurray is four points out of 16th. Kahne is 13 points behind.
