LOUDON, N.H., Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Tony Stewart won his second straight Chase for the Sprint Cup race Sunday, claiming the Sylvania 300 in New Hampshire after Clint Bowyer ran out of fuel.

Bowyer was leading when his tank ran dry with two laps remaining, allowing Stewart to grab the top position and follow up last week's victory at Chicagoland Speedway with another win.

The two-time Sprint Cup Series champion notched his second triumph of the season and the 41st of his career.

With the win, Stewart took over the points lead of the Chase, forging a seven-point advantage over Kevin Harvick, who finished 12th Sunday.

Keselowski, who came in second in New Hampshire, is 11 points behind.

Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers rounded out Sunday's Top 5 finishers.
