When the fireworks cleared on the track Saturday night, Tony Stewart was left standing in Victory Lane for the third time in the past five July races in Daytona.
Two of our writers (Ben Bomberger and James Broomhead) correctly picked Stewart to take home the win, giving each their first win of the season.
Here is a look at each writers' pick from Daytona last weekend, where they finished, and the updated point standings (wins are in parenthesis):
Ben Bomberger, (2614) Tony Stewart won. (1)

Remember, during the regular season, our writers are trying to collect as many wins as possible.
After Richmond, points will be reset with each writer receiving 10 points for correctly picking a winner during the season.
For the final 10 races, the points will matter, and a Creature vs. Creature Champion will be crowned following the season finale in Homestead.
Check back on Friday for this weekend's picks.
