The Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway saw a pair of teammates start 1 and 2 and finish the same way. Ryan Newman took the checkered flag and the race to the Chase is starting to get interesting. Here’s a recap of the race in pictures.
Stewart- Haas Racing has had their share of ups and downs this season. This last weekend was not one of those down moments as teammates, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart, finished the race the same way they started – in 1st and 2nd respectively.
“We backed up what everybody said we couldn’t back up, and that was our qualifying effort on Friday,” Newman said. “We put it on ’em today. We don’t put it on ’em every weekend, so we need to relish this moment and figure out what we did right so we can keep doing it.”
It was the first time since June 2006 at Pocono that the two drivers who started a race 1-2 finished in the same positions, a feat accomplished then by Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch.
Newman got his first win of the season.
Here is a look at the top 10 finishers at this weekends race at New Hampshire followed by a recap of the race in pictures.
