NASCAR at New Hampshire live race updates, results, highlights from Foxwoods Resort Casino 301

Winless NASCAR drivers got a glimmer of hope of making the playoffs last week in Atlanta after Kurt Busch became just the 12th race winner of the 2021 season — and first first-time winner since Chase Elliott won the Circuit of the Americas on May 23.

The Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway presents the opportunity for a 13th unique winner to earn what should be an automatic berth in the playoffs; but NASCAR hasn’t seen consecutive first-time winners this season since Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch won at Talladega and Kansas on April 25 and May 2, respectively.

That said, there are five more races, Sunday’s included, to fill out four more winners for the 16-car playoffs. Every winless driver from here on out will have even greater pressure to make the playoffs, with time dwindling before the start of the postseason.

Denny Hamlin is the likeliest among that bunch to earn his first win on Sunday. The regular-season points leader — he has 10 points more than four-time winner Kyle Larson — still hasn’t won a race this season, despite 11 top-five finishes and 14 in the top 10. But he has enjoyed success at the NHMS, including three wins and six runner-up finishes.
