Here is the post-race transcript following Tony Stewart's win in Sunday's Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:
KERRY THARP: Tony Stewart goes to Victory Lane here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This is Tony's 45th NASCAR Sprint Cup win, his first win here at Las Vegas. I believe, Tony, you've won six of the last 13 Sprint Cup races. I'm not real good in math but that's almost 50%. You checked off a track that you hadn't won at. It's got to be a big win here for you.
TONY STEWART: It is. Just an awesome day. We felt like after Happy Hour yesterday we had a really good, solid, fairly balanced racecar. That's probably the best I felt leaving Happy Hour in a long time.

"I'm ok. My foot hurt, but I'm ok. For as big of a hit that way; I'm pretty good to be honest."
TELL US WHAT HAPPENED?
"Something fell in the rear of the car and the car just spun into the jet dryer. I felt a vibration and came in. They looked at everything and everything was ok and I still told them 'I think there is something broke' and I was coming back into the pits and the car just spun by itself."
