Tony Stewart has won two Brickyard 400 races as a driver.

Now he has won one as an owner.

The Columbus native finished fourth Sunday afternoon, but watched as South Bend native Ryan Newman basked in the celebration of his first Brickyard victory.

“It’s just as good as winning it as a driver, especially to be here when he wins his first one, and it’s our last one together, so I’m glad we could finish it off this way,” Stewart said. “He’s been such a strong teammate from Day 1, and he’s not only a good teammate, he’s a great friend and that’s what makes this even more special. You love it when your buddies win.”
