It’s time for round two of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. This week’s stop at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, also known as the Magic Mile, for Sunday’s Sylvania 300 could help further shake up the top runners, or help separate the contenders from the rest of the field.

Brad Keselowski scored a decisive win over favorite Jimmie Johnson in round one last week at Chicagoland. The win vaulted BK to the top of the points for the first time in his career and put the others on notice.

This is the first track in the Chase that was visited by the series once already this season; in that July race Keselowski finished fifth. He was second in this race last season, so a win by him isn’t out of the question.  MORE>>>
