Leaving little doubt who had the best car, Brad Keselowski easily won Sunday’s NASCAR race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

A clearly superior Brad Keselowski won Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Although dominant throughout much of the afternoon, Keselowski had to withstand a green-white-checkered finish to win the Camping World RV Sales 300.

"It is every drivers dream," Keselowski said in Victory Lane. "Every once in awhile you get these cars and you are thankful and try like hell to not screw them up."

Pole-sitter Kyle Busch finished runner-up, with rookie Kyle Larson in third. Matt Kenseth and Ryan Newman round out the top five.

Starting second, Keselowski led seven times for 138 laps en route to winning his third race this season. The victory Sunday was reminiscent of Keselowski's triumph two weeks ago, where he led 199 of 267 laps at Kentucky Speedway.

"This was a hard fought battle passing cars and trying to stay up front all day," Keselowski said. "We had a couple bullets to dodge and I am not thinking of anything else right now than how thankful I am to have a team and car that is clicking this well. Hopefully we can keep it going."

With the win, Keselowski clinched a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, a year after failing to qualify for NASCAR's playoffs. Also clinching a berth was Dale Earnhardt, who overcame a 28th starting position to finish 10th.

Keselowski also won Saturday's Nationwide Series race. He becomes the first driver to win both events in a single weekend at New Hampshire.
