The Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire was a race filled with cautions, and one where drivers needed to worry about their tires.

Jimmie Johnson put on a show, and went from 43rd place to an eventual sixth place finish.

The real story of the race though, was Brian Vickers ending up in victory lane.

Vicker's hadn't won a race since 2009, and with his win today in the 55, he's basically locked up for a full-time ride with Michael Waltrip Racing in the 55 car.

New Hampshire had plenty of action, and saw several lead changes.

Tony Stewart looked like he had a great shot at taking home the victory, but during the green-white-checkered finish, Tony would run out of gas and finish in 26th.

His Chase hopes took a huge shot with a poor finish at New Hampshire, as he slid to 13th in the standings.

Kurt Busch also saw his Chase hopes take a hit when he was caught up in a wreck with Ryan Newman.

Other drivers, like Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin had solid finishes today, and while it might be too late for Hamlin to make it into the Chase without winning races, Keselowski still has a shot to see the post season.

There's still several races left before the Chase that could change the standings, so make sure to join us back here in two weeks as we cover the race at Indianapolis.

Winner: Brian Vickers
