NASCAR At New Hampshire Race Results: Tony Stewart Scores Second-Straight Chase Win

In a reversal of last year's Chase race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Tony Stewart was able to save enough fuel and capitalize as race leader Clint Bowyer ran out of gas with two laps to go.

"You can take a breath, I've got this," Stewart said on the final lap coming to the win. 

"I know exactly how he feels right now," Stewart said of Bowyer running out of gas. "That's not how you want to win it for sure, but we're in the Chase right now and we'll take them any way we can right now."

Taking the checkered flag for the second week in a row, Stewart opened the 2011 Chase with back-to-back wins to become the points leader – the first driver to do so since Greg Biffle in 2008.

After an impressive performance in the spring, Stewart said he felt this weekend was "a good opportunity" to make gains in the Chase, but admitted "it's way too early to count your chickens."
