(Loudon, NH) - The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon this weekend.

One practice session is scheduled for Friday before qualifying later tomorrow afternoon. Two practice sessions will take place Saturday morning with the race on Sunday afternoon.

Stewart-Haas Racing took last year's two events at New Hampshire with Ryan Newman taking the July race and Tony Stewart winning last September's event, which is part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Stewart is coming off a win last Saturday night at Daytona. Matt Kenseth enters the weekend as the points leader, extending his advantage over second-place driver Dale Earnhardt Junior to 25 points at Daytona.

Following Sunday's race, the Sprint Cup Series will take a week off before heading to Indianapolis for the July 29th Crown Royal 400 at the Brickyard.
