(LAS VEGAS) — Three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart is hoping to carry over his success at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.
Stewart currently sits 20th in the Sprint Cup standings, but has one victory at Las Vegas to go along with six top-five finishes.
“Hopefully after today we’ll have a little better idea of what we can do for the rest of the weekend,” Stewart told ABC Sports Radio on Thursday before starting testing on the track.
Stewart said his team is still getting used to the new rule changes that NASCAR instituted this season.
“That’s what makes racing and especially NASCAR so much more unique,” Stewart said. “Everything with our series changes constantly because of technology.”
As for going for his fourth Sprint Cup title this season, Stewart is hopeful.
“I’ve never said never in my life,” Stewart said. “We’ve got a good group of teammates and crew chiefs here at Stewart-Haas.”
