  Tony Stewart got his third straight top 10. Ryan Newman parlayed an off-sequence pit stop strategy into a fifth-place finish. Danica Patrick made a bid for a top-20 result before falling back to 29th at the finish. Overall, it was another strong performance from Stewart-Haas Racing, which seems to have turned a corner over the last three weeks. "Definitely progress, for sure," said Stewart, who followed his win last Sunday at Dover with a fourth in the Party in the Poconos 400. "It’s one thing if one car runs good, but to have two or three of us running good shows that we are gaining momentum. "It’s not just one team. The whole organization is gaining momentum." Race winner Jimmie Johnson and third-place Dale Earnhardt Jr., along with Stewart and Newman, all had Hedrick Motorsports engines under their hoods. "There’s no doubt that having four of the top five cars with Hendrick horsepower shows the strength there," Stewart said.
