Matt Kenseth and Joe Gibbs Racing is off to a good start two races into the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. At New Hampshire Raceway Kenseth made it two for two with teammate Kyle Busch coming in second for the second week in a row.

It’s the seventh win of the season for Kenseth and he joins Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle as the only drivers to win the first two Chase races.

Kenseth took the lead with 92 laps left and held on for his first career victory at New Hampshire.  It’s his 31st career victory coming in his 500th Sprint Cup start.

Following the one-two finish by Kenseth and Busch, Biffle came in third with Jimmie Johnson and Jamie McMurray completing the Top Five.

Kenseth increases his points lead to 14 points over Kyle Busch and 17 points over Jimmie Johnson.

Next up on the schedule is the Monster Mile at Dover International Raceway next Sunday.
