DOVER, Del., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Ryan Newman's pit crew worked fuel strategy to perfection Sunday to create a victory at the MBNA America 400.
Newman completed a NASCAR Winston Cup season sweep at Dover International Speedway.
He made his final pit stop with 106 laps remaining in the 400-lap race, giving him just enough fuel to record his series-best seventh win of the year. The victory was even more impressive since Newman cut a tire on lap 46 and dropped more than a lap behind.
Jeremy Mayfield was second, matching his best finish of the season. He also was second behind Newman two races ago at Richmond.
