Cup: New Hampshire - Race results

Kasey Kahne won the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after a race dominated by Hendrick Motorsport and Joe Gibbs Racing drivers.
Kasey Kahne looked strong all afternoon at Loudon, but victory in the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway had always looked predestined to go to Denny Hamlin - until confusion with his pit crew about the number of tyres to take at the last pit stop cost him the lead and the race.

Instead it was Kahne in victory lane, his 14th win in 307 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and his second in 2012 following on from winning the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. That puts him in the lead position for getting into the post-season Chase via a wild card, despite being outside the top ten in the standings.

The previous day, Denny Hamlin completed a clean sweep of Saturday practice opportunities by topping both the practice 2 (28.969s, 131.479 mph) and practice 3 sessions (28.990s, 131.383 mph).
