Matt Kenseth won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday. His win of eight seconds over his teammate Denny Hamlin was the most un-dramatic thing to happen Sunday. The race was disaster for several Chase drivers and included a six minute red flag. Here’s how it all went down Sunday at New Hampshire.
Carl Edwards, who swept the poles at Loudon this year, led the field to the green just as he did in July. Kevin Harvick, in desperate need of a good finish after finishing 42nd the week prior, started second on the inside. Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch battled for third; Keselowski got the spot, Kyle Larson fell into fifth. By lap 15, Harvick was pressuring Edwards for the lead. Harvick was finally wrest the lead away from Edwards on lap 20. Kurt Busch was in third, Keselowski fourth, and Jimmie Johnson fifth.
