NASCAR At Charlotte Update: Point leader Brad Keselowski leads after 200 of 334 laps

Brad Keselowski overhauled Greg Biffle shortly after the most recent restart, and the Sprint Cup point leader holds the lead in the Bank of America 500 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway with 200 laps complete. Keselowski, who entered the race with a 14-point edge on Jimmie Johnson, has led the most laps on the night and counting.

Denny Hamlin - third in the points battle entering the night - holds second ahead of his teammate Kyle Busch, Biffle - the polesitter - and Mark Martin. Clint Bowyer holds sixth-place, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Carl Edwards, and Tony Stewart.

The night has featured more of the cat-and-mouse strategy games between Keselowski and crew chief Paul Wolfe and the five-time champs Johnson and Chad Knaus. Keselowski's team has seemed to have the upper hand more often than not lately, and they so so right now as well. Knaus called for two tires during the most-recent pit stop under caution, and Johnson dropped like a rock from the lead to seventh-place. Keselowski, meanwhile, shows the way.
