Keselowski Holds Off Kenseth At Bristol [VIDEO]
Four races so far this season and four different winners in four different brand cars. Brad Keselowski led a race-high 231 of the 500 laps to win his second straight race at Bristol. He was the winner of last year’s fall race there. Keselowski battled Matt Kenseth on several late restarts including the final one with 17 laps left and pulled away for the victory.
And a good day for three Toyotas on the Michael Waltrip team Martin Truex, Junior, Clint Bowyer and Brian Vickers rounded out the top five.
It was Vickers first race of the season and an impressive debut by leading 125 laps. In 14 previous races at B Bristol Vickers had led only one lap and never finished in the top 10.
Greg Biffle remains the points leader, 9 points up on Kevin Harvick. Biffle finished 13th while Harvick came in 11th.
Jimmie Johnson finished ninth in what likely will be his final race with crew chief Brad Knaus for a while. This week NASCAR will hear their final appeal of a six race suspension, $100,000 fine and the loss of 25 driver points for illegal equipment found prior to the Daytona 500.
Next up on the schedule is Fontana, California.
