New Hampshire: Cup results

Brian Vickers emerged victorious in the Camping World RV Sales 301 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, his first win at the top level since he won at Michigan in August 2009, 75 starts ago.
Brian Vickers became the 11th different winner in the last 11 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at New Hampshire when he claimed the chequered flag for Michael Waltrip Racing in the Camping World RV Sales 301 race.

Vickers - a Nationwide Series regular with Joe Gibbs Racing, but also competing on a part-time basis in the #55 car usually piloted by Mark Martin - secured his third victory in 271 Cup starts after longtime leader Tony Stewart ran out of gas when the race was extended by one lap for a green-white-chequered finish after a late debris caution.

Vickers' last victory in the Cup series was on August 16, 2009 at Michigan, a gap of 75 starts. He finished half a second ahead of Kyle Busch, who led in the early stages of the race but then suffered from handling problems in the hotter afternoon conditions and who was unable to find enough speed to challenge for the lead at the final restart.

Jimmie Johnson finished in sixth place after starting from the back row, having had his qualifying times deleted when the #48 was found to be running too low at the front. That means Johnson extends his lead the standings by 56 points over Clint Bowyer, who came across the line in 13th place on Sunday afternoon.
