DOVER, DEL. (AP) - Tony Stewart can start 3 for 3 in the Chase. He’s also aiming for his third career Cup championship.

Stewart is off to a fantastic start in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, with wins at Chicagoland Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He’s only the second driver in the eight-year history of the Chase to go 2 for 2.

The odds are against him winning his third straight race. Dover International Speedway has been one of Stewart’s worst tracks for years.

He says he’s proven he can win, even with distractions swirling around him. But he refused to say what those distractions were other than his weekly obligations with the media.

Stewart is chasing history. He could become the first owner-driver to win the Cup since Alan Kulwicki in 1992.
