LOUDON, N.H. — Brad Keselowski hopped out of his car and grabbed an oversized broom to give a playful sweep of all the confetti already collected around his Ford.
He completed a flawless weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and won Sunday under a green-white checkered finish. Keselowski followed up Saturday’s Nationwide Series victory with his first Sprint Cup win at New Hampshire, dominating in the No. 2 Ford for his third victory of the season.
The 2012 Sprint Cup champion is now tied with Jimmie Johnson for the series lead in wins.
After the last caution came with four laps left, Keselowski pulled away on the final restart to become the first driver to sweep the weekend in track history. He had the fastest car most of the weekend, even leading the speed charts during both Sprint Cup practices on Saturday.
Pole sitter Kyle Busch was second. Kyle Larson, Matt Kenseth and Ryan Newman completed the top five.
All three of Roush Fenway’s drivers finished in the top 15. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was the top RFR driver with a ninth-place finish, and Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle finished 13th and 15th, respectively.
Edwards sits in sixth place in the Sprint Cup standings, which is Roush Fenway’s best. Biffle holds the 16 spot, while Stenhouse is in 28th place.
