LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Clint Bowyer has stormed out of the gate in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by snapping an 88-race drought and winning at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Bowyer had the most dominant car Sunday but lost the lead to Tony Stewart on a restart during a flurry of cautions late in the race. Bowyer couldn't catch the two-time champion with speed, but pounced when Stewart ran out of gas with a lap to go.
Bowyer was nursing his own fuel tank to the finish line, and barely held off Denny Hamlin for the victory. It was Bowyer's third in the Cup series and first since Richmond in 2008.
His first career victory came under similar circumstances: After sneaking into the Chase, Bowyer won the 2007 race at New Hampshire to cement himself a championship contender.
