    LOUDON, N.H. -- Brad Keselowski hopped out of his car and grabbed an oversized broom to give a playful sweep of all the confetti already collected around his Ford.

    He then truly savored his victory, snagging a New England lobster and raising it in triumph. Keselowski survived without a cut, splinter or pinch. He didn't even fumble his championship crustacean. For once, his victory celebration was as perfect as his performance on the track.

    He completed a flawless weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and won Sunday under a green-white checkered finish. Keselowski followed up Saturday's Nationwide Series victory with his first Sprint Cup win at New Hampshire, dominating in the No. 2 Ford for his third victory of the season.
