Tony Stewart recorded his fifth NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) victory of 2008 today at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Along with Stewart, other Camry drivers who have won NNS races this year include Kyle Busch (four wins), Denny Hamlin (two wins) and Joey Logano (one win).

Other Camry drivers in the field today included Hamlin (second), Busch (third), David Reutimann (seventh), Mike Wallace (15th) and Jason Leffler (32nd).

DAVID REUTIMANN, No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing
Finished: 7th

How strong was your car today? "It was good. We led a little bit. We just never really made any changes -- just a little bit with the track bar and stuff. We took four there toward the end and a lot of those guys took two and we were coming back up through there and got together with another car and bent the right front fender in there pretty bad. It's just disappointing. We felt like we had a shot to win."

Did the contact affect your car? "Yeah, these things are so sensitive on aero stuff anyway. It doesn't take a whole lot. That's kind of what killed us there at the end. It didn't help us any."
