Kenseth second, Stewart fifth in challenge


OREGON, Wis. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth finished second at his hometown track and Tony Stewart was fifth in a short-track All-Star Challenge at Madison International Speedway on Tuesday night.

Chris Wimmer, a short-track veteran from Wausau, Wis., won the 100-lap super late model race on the half-mile oval.

Kenseth led 86 laps, but did not have the dominant car of the night. That distinction belonged to Wimmer.

Kenseth was aiming for his fourth win in eight attempts at MIS since 2003. He started on the pole after a 13-car field inversion.
