Las Vegas, Nevada -- Tony Stewart scratched another race track off the bucket list.

Powering away from Jimmie Johnson after a restart with four laps left in Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the reigning Sprint Cup champion took the checkered flag .461 seconds ahead of Johnson.

The victory was Stewart's first at the 1.5-mile track, leaving only Darlington and Kentucky as active Cup tracks at which he hasn't won. The win was Stewart's 45th, 15th all time, in 467 Cup starts.

"Man, I'm just finally glad to win one here," said Stewart, who had the fastest car in last year's race but squandered his winning chances when he incurred a penalty for dragging an air wrench from his pit stall. "We were so close last year and had a dominant car.

"I'm not sure we had the dominant car [Sunday], but we had an awful fast Chevy. Just glad to finally, finally get one at Vegas."
