(Loudon, NH) --  Brian Vickers made a late pass on Tony Stewart to win Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Vickers says he's learned a lot from his recent struggles on and off the track.

He took the lead for the first time with 16 laps remaining and held on for his third-career Sprint Cup Series win. The victory ended a 75-race winless streak for Vickers. Stewart ran out of fuel late allowing Kyle Busch to take second place. Jeff Burton finished third while pole-sitter and defending Cup champion Brad Keselowski came in fourth. Aric Amirola rounded out the top-five. The Cup series has next week off before heading to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 28.
