Last year: Ryan Newman easily won the MBNA America 400 at Dover International Speedway, while Jeff Gordon took the points lead with his third-place finish. Fast facts: Kasey Kahne and Robby Gordon were fined but not suspended by NASCAR on Monday for road-rage incidents during last week’s race at Loudon.

Kahne was fined $25,000 and docked 25 points in the driver standings for intentionally hitting Kyle Busch’s car as retaliation for an earlier accident. … Defending champion Kurt Busch was involved in a second-lap crash at Loudon, relegating him to a 35th-place finish and last place in the Chase. … Stewart has finished eighth or better in each of his last 13 races.
