(Loudon, NH) - Round Two of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup takes place at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with Sunday’s Sylvania 300.

One practice session is scheduled before qualifying today with two more practices on Saturday afternoon.

Brad Keselowski won last Sunday's race at Chicagoland Speedway and enters the weekend with a three-point lead over Jimmie Johnson in the Chase.

Tony Stewart, who sits third in points, is the defending race winner while Kasey Kahne, who is in a fourth-place tie, won this season's first race at New Hampshire.

Denny Hamlin and Clint Bowyer are tied with Kahne in fourth, 15 points behind Keselowski.

The others competing for the Sprint Cup are Dale Earnhardt Junior, Greg Biffle, Martin Truex Junior, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth and Jeff Gordon.

All but Gordon finished in the top 16.

The former Pittsboro resident crashed when the throttle of his car stuck and he finished 35th. Gordon enters Sunday 47 points behind Keselowski
