The first-year winner of the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) Series, NASCAR Hall of Famer Stewart, struggled in the 2022 season opener in Pensacola, Florida, previous weekend.

On Saturday night, he made up for that, holding off Greg Biffle to clinch the 100-lap main event amid multiple on-track accidents and tense exchanges.

Throughout the night’s heat races and main event, Stewart had encounters with both Marco Andretti and Ernie Francis Jr.

“I was worried we would get a caution late, so I just tried to take care of it there, but I think backing my pace off actually hurt me versus helping me. I thought I was trying to take care of it and I think I was making some problems a little bit worse by not running as hard as earlier,” Stewart said.

“This car was really good. When we practiced, it rolled the corner really nice, it was a little loose off. I was worried about it. I haven’t been to South Boston since I ran a midget clear back in 2000, 2001, 2002 or something like that.

“Didn’t know, couldn’t remember the characteristics of what this track does when it cools off. I was hoping it would tighten up and it did a little, just not as much as we needed.”

Third-place finisher Bobby Labonte, fourth-place finisher Ryan Newman, and previous week’s victor Helio Castroneves made up the top five.

On Saturday, Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut will host the sixth event of the six-race season. Stewart, Andretti, Biffle, Hailie Deegan, Bill Elliott, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Labonte, Newman, Paul Tracy, Michael Waltrip, and Justin Marks, the owner of a NASCAR Cup Series squad, will all be present.
