Cup - Loudon - Race results

Stewart-Haas converted its front row qualifying performance to a 1-2 race victory, with Ryan Newman leading his team mate and boss Tony Stewart across the finish line by 0.773s.
After a disappointing season to date that has left Tony Stewart making changes within the team, Stewart-Haas came roaring back to form with a 1-2 result in Sunday afternoon's Lenox Industrial Tools 301 Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.

Ryan Newman took the win, his 15th in 351 starts ending a 47-race winless streak. He's the 13th different winner in the 19 Cup races so far in the 2011 season and also led the most laps in the race - 119 of the 301 race distance.

Former Cup points leader Kyle Busch crashed after blowing a tyre and hitting the wall on lap 59. Although he later rejoined after repairs, he finished in 36th place and drops to fifth in the standings behind Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch and Kevin Harvick.
