In a rare summer occurrence the NASCAR Nationwide series would be running with the Sprint Cup series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend.

On Saturday afternoon under a mix of sun and clouds championship points’ leader, Brad Keselowski would lead the field to green for the New England 200.

With weather looking to be a factor they took the green flag with Keselowski pulling the field around this one mile, flat race track.

On lap seven contact between Danica Patrick and Morgan Shepard had Patrick turned on the race track and down at least one lap early. She hit pit road for repairs but was clearly frustrated with the early contact.

On the restart Busch took the lead but Keselowski was not willing to give up that easily. He fought back and led until Kevin Harvick wrestled the lead on lap 43.

Busch was not far behind and took the lead back just a handful of laps later and Busch began to check out.

Green flag stops began on lap 75 with Busch coming in on lap 77 for their first adjustments of the day.

For Austin Dillon it was a stop to forget, he started to pull away before the team was finished on the stop. They pitted outside the box and finished putting on the left rear tire. Dillon was forced to come down pit road and serve a penalty. His strong run early was basically over after a costly mistake.

On lap 94, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Tayler Malsam made contact. Malsam hit the wall ahrd and was forced to the garage. Stenhouse would continue but the caution would come out just prior to halfway and with weather on the way.

Keselowski was able to hold off Elliott Sadler who also stayed out on that caution. Busch though quickly made his way to second and took the lead on lap 120.

Logano quickly took over second and Keselowski settled in third.

On lap 146, Mike Bliss had an engine issue and brought out the third caution of the day. All the leaders hit pit road but with different strategies.

 Some like Busch and Logano took two tires while others like Harvick and Keselowski took four. This would set up everyone good on fuel and tires for the remaining laps.

Caution waved when Mark Green made contact with the wall and with 23 laps to go would set up a race to the finish.

On the restart Logano did not get a good jump and that let Keselowski into second. Logano continued to drop back and settled into fourth.

It would come down to Busch and Keselowski for the win. Busch though was able to hold off Keselowski, and became the first second time winner at NHMS.

Busch also broke another record and took over the all time lap led in the NNS.

The rest of the top 10 were Edwards, Logano, Trevor Bayne,Justin Allgaier, Reed Sorenson, Kevin Harvick, Paul Menard and Brendan Gaughan.

Next weekend the series heads back to the high banks of Daytona International Speedway for a Friday night duel under the lights.
