LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Tony Stewart made it 2 for 2 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, pulling ahead when Clint Bowyer ran of gas with two laps left to win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday.
Stewart is on a roll when it matters most, following last week's Chase opening victory with another strong performance at New Hampshire. Both of his victories this season have come in the Chase and have propelled him to the top of the points standings.
The outcome was a complete reversal of last fall's race at New Hampshire. Stewart's tank ran dry a lap from the checkered flag and Bowyer pounced for the victory.
Four other Chase drivers finished in the top 10. Brad Keselowski was second, Jeff Gordon was fourth, Matt Kenseth was sixth and Carl Edwards finished eighth.
Stewart, a two-time Cup champion, is the second driver to ever open the Chase with consecutive victories.
