Brian Vickers, a part-time driver for Michael Waltrip Racing in the Sprint Cup Series this season, won Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301 after making a late-race pass on Tony Stewart at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Vickers moved ahead of Stewart and took the lead for the first time with 16 laps remaining. Vickers snapped a 75-race winless streak and hadn’t won since the August 2009 race at Michigan International Speedway.               

A caution for debris in the closing laps setup a two-lap overtime finish. After the restart, Vickers pulled ahead of the field, while Stewart ran out of fuel and slowed on the track, allowing Kyle Busch to take second. Series points leader Jimmie Johnson finished sixth and is 56 points ahead of Clint Bowyer, who took 13th place.

The Sprint Cup series has this coming week off before heading to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 28th for the Brickyard 400.
