What started as a deeply emotional race for Tony Stewart ended prematurely when a blown tire cut short his return to NASCAR. Stewart came back to competition Sunday for the first time since his car struck and killed another driver on August 9. The crowd at the Oral-B USA 500 erupted in cheers as Stewart was introduced. But after just 172 of 325 laps at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, his front right tire blew, and Stewart’s car smacked the wall on Turn 2. In the end, Kasey Kahne won the race and clinched a spot in the “Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup” playoff.
