Matt Kenseth led a measly 38 laps at New Hampshire but hoisted the traditional Victory Lane lobster and notched his second victory of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

But while Kenseth is eating lobster rolls this week, the bigger celebration falls in the direction of both Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski.

Harvick (4th at Loudon) had another strong showing and continues to lead the way in the latest edition of NASCAR Power Rankings at The Wife Hates Sports.

For the second consecutive week, Brad Keselowski (15th at New Hampshire) sits in second place, losing some ground to Harvick.

The Busch brothers occupy the third and fourth positions, as Joey Logano returns to the top five, following a third place finish in New England.

Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart are the biggest movers of the week, each jumping two spots in the latest rankings.  On the flip side, Carl Edwards falls two spots in the latest poll and is the biggest loser of the week.

Next week, the NASCAR field heads to The Brickyard.
