Tony Stewart was crowned NASCAR's champion - on a tiebreak -- after winning the Ford 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday.
The victory for Stewart meant he and Carl Edwards finished level on points for the season, but Stewart wins the Sprint Cup thanks to winning more races (5-0) in the season-ending Chase playoffs.
ALSO: Stewart became the first driver/owner to win a championship since Alan Kulwicki accomplished the feat in 1992.
Stewart claimed his third title by becoming the first driver to clinch the championship by winning the season finale.
First Lady Michelle Obama didn’t receive the warmest welcome at NASCAR’s Sprint Cup finale in Florida on Sunday.
Mixed with cheers, there was some loud booing after Obama was introduced as one of the race’s grand marshalls.
Michelle O, along with second lady Jill Biden, kicked off the race declaring, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”
Obama and Biden took part in the sporting event as part of their Joining Forces initiative to support military families.
