DOVER, Del. (AP) - Tony Stewart made a late out outside pass on Juan Pablo Montoya and held on Sunday at Dover International Speedway to snap a 30-race winless streak.


Stewart hadn't even had a top-five finish this season and was stuck in 20th in the points standings. He took the lead with the pass with three laps left in the 400-mile race.


Stewart hadn't won on the concrete mile track since he swept both Cup races in 2000.


Seven-time Dover winner Jimmie Johnson appeared to have the car to beat, but jumped a restart and had to serve a pass-through penalty. Johnson argued over the radio and stayed on the track before he finally hit pit road.


With Johnson out of the picture, Montoya and Stewart battled for the lead the rest of the race.
