Brad Keselowski became the first driver to sweep back-to-back weekend races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, dominating both the Nationwide race on Saturday and the Sprint Cup race on Sunday.

Keselowski led 131 laps for his third win of the season to guarantee him a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He’s also the 13th different winner in the last 13 races at New Hampshire.

Pole sitter Kyle Busch appeared to have the car to beat early in the race, leading 62 laps, but settled for second. Rookie Kyle Larson, Matt Kenseth and Ryan Newman completed the Top 5.

Jimmie Johnson made an early exit when a blown tire put his car into the wall. Joey Logano was an early contender until he was spun into the wall by 72-year-old Morgan Sheppard. Jeff Gordon was running second late in the race when he ran out of gas and finished 26th.

With the win Keselowski moves up to third in the points standings behind Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

There’s a break in the season next weekend. The schedule resumes on Sunday, July 27 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
