Keselowski Claims His Third Win of the Season
NASCAR's new competition package of more downforce and less horsepower was introduced under the lights over the weekend at Kansas Speedway and if it's an indication of things to come, it should bring more great racing. Saturday's race needed four extra laps to complete and it was Brad Keselowski using fresher tires to get around Alex Bowman to notch his third victory of the season.
Keselowski beat Bowman to the finish line by just over 2-tenths of a second forcing Bowman to settle for second place for the third straight race and to keep him looking for his first career Cup victory.
Erik Jones came in third with Chase Elliott and Clint Bowyer completing the Top 5.
Kyle Busch was looking to extend his streak of Top 10 finishes, but a cut tire forced him to pit road and he never got back into contention. Busch finished 30th and his Top 10 streak ends at 11 straight races.
Pole winner Kevin Harvick led a race-high 105 laps but a tire issue brought him to pit road costing him. He battled back though to finish 13th.
Now it's off to Charlotte for the next two weekends starting with next weekend's All-Star race.
