Tony Stewart Wins Again, Takes NASCAR Points Lead [VIDEO]

When it matters the most, Tony Stewart is two for two.  After going winless up until last week’s Chase for the Sprint Cup opener at Chicagoland Speedway, Stewart won for the second week in a row, this time at New Hampshire.  Stewart took the lead when Clint Bowyer ran out of gas with two laps to go.  It was almost the exact reverse of what happened last year when Stewart ran out of gas with one lap to go allowing Bowyer to go on to the victory.

Stewart is the second driver since the Chase format began to open with back to back victories.  It also moves Stewart past Kevin Harvick for the lead in the Chase standings, seven points up on Harvick.  Brad Keselowski finished second and he’s now third in the standings, 11 points back. The only other driver to win the first two Chase races, Greg Biffle, finished third.

Three other drivers in the Chase finished in the top 10.  Jeff Gordon was fourth.  Matt Kenseth finished sixth with Carl Edwards eighth.  Gordon moved from 11th to 5th in the standings.

The Monster Mile at Dover is up next on the schedule.
