It was his first race since a fatal collision earlier this month and Tony Stewart was unable to finish.

Stewart’s number 14 hit the wall halfway through the Oral-B 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia on Sunday.

He had started in the twelfth position and was as high as fourth at one time.  However, he tore the right side of his car after hitting the wall on the 122nd lap but was able to carry on until a blown right front tire forced him back into the wall on the 172nd lap.

Stewart earned a 41st place finish.

It was Kasey Kahne who won the race, his first Sprint Cup win of the season.  Matt Kenseth was second, followed by Denny Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, and Danica Patrick.

Hampton marked Stewart’s first race since his car hit and killed fellow driver Kevin Ward, Jr. at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on August 9th.
