Stewart vows to go after Kenseth after Bristol wreck

Posted:

BRISTOL, Tenn. (WKOW, AP) -- Matt Kenseth, you've been warned. Tony Stewart is not happy about the wreck at Bristol and he's vowed to come after you for the rest of the season.

"I'm going to run over him every chance I get for the rest of the year," Stewart said of Kenseth.

Kenseth and Stewart were battling for the lead when they made contact and both spun into the wall, damaging their cars and enraging Stewart, who proceeded to chuck his helmet at Kenseth's windshield shortly after the wreck.

And when informed that he'd get his helmet back, Stewart shot back, "I don't give a crap. Hell with the helmet."

Denny Hamlin won for the first time at Bristol Motor Speedway with a calculated late pass.

Hamlin flirted with Carl Edwards for the lead late in the race, and set up his move with 39 laps remaining Saturday night. Hamlin used a slide move to get past Edwards, then held on as Edwards tried to use a cross-over move to get back in front.

It didn't work for Edwards, and Hamlin drove away for his third victory of the season.

Jimmie Johnson finished second and clinched a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Greg Biffle and Dale Earnhardt Jr. also locked down spots in the 12-driver field.

Jeff Gordon was third, followed by Brian Vickers and Marcos Ambrose.
