Kenseth passes out-of-gas Harvick for Loudon win

4Matt Kenseth joined Denny Hamlin on the “win and you advance” list Sunday afternoon, as Kenseth won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) SYLVANIA 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and will advance to round 2 in the “chase for the championship.”

This was Kenseth’s fifth series win and 18th top-10 finish of the 2015 season, his 36th series career win in 572 races and his second series win in 32 races at “the Magic Mile.”

Rounding out the top-10 finishing positions were Jimmie Johnson taking sixth-place, Jeff Gordon seventh, Martin Truex Jr. eighth, Kasey Kahne ninth and Ryan Newman brought home 10th-place.
