Tony Stewart finally could be in that sweet spot — winning at the race track and winning in life. Minutes after he grabbed the Top Alcohol Dragster trophy, Hagan put the team’s Haas Automation Dodge Hellcat Funny Car into the winner’s circle, establishing his command over the class with his third victory in the season’s first four races. As he climbed from his Mobil 1 dragster at the top end of the track, Stewart said later, he felt a little lost.
