(Loudon, NH) -- Matt Kenseth made it two-for-two in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by winning Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Kenseth says there is still a long road to winning the championship.

He becomes the third driver to win the first two races in NASCAR's playoffs. Greg Biffle did so in 2008 while Tony Stewart accomplished the feat in 2011 and went on to win the title.  Kyle Busch finished right behind Kenseth, followed by Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson and Jamie McMurray. Kenseth's lead over Busch in the standings was increased to 14 points, while Johnson is 18 points back. The Chase heads to the Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway next week.
