Tony Stewart, front, finished 21 st in Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway and clinched a spot inside the top 30 in the points standings with two races remaining until the Chase begins. That, along with his victory at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway in June, means three-time champion Stewart has also clinched a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2012.
