NASCAR At Pocono Results: Injured Brad Keselowski Wins Good Sam 500 Over Kyle Buschh

For the second time in 2011 and the third time in his career - and with a broken ankle, no less - Brad Keselowski went to victory lane Sunday, winning the Good Sam RV Insurance 500 at Pocono Raceway.

Keselowski, who was injured in a crash at Road Atlanta this week, has solidified his opportunity to get into the 2011 Chase via a wild card, moving into the top-20 in points with his second win.

Kyle Busch and Kurt Busch were second and third, followed by Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman. Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Paul Menard rounded out the top-10 finishers.

Kurt Busch and Johnson beat on one another on the last lap and had a face-to-face confrontation after the race, with Johnson claiming he ran Busch clean only to be cheap-shotted and Busch claiming he gave Johnson room and Johnson ran into him. Johnson indeed ran behind Busch for several laps, never making contact with him until the cars were side-by-side on the final lap in a situation that seemed Busch was the aggressor. This is not the first incident between the duo, and will likely not be the last moving forward.
