NASCAR At Kentucky: Brad Keselowski Claims Third Win Of Season

Brad Keselowski saved just enough fuel at the end to win the Quaker State 400 and capture his series-best third win of the season in the process. Keselowski drove his backup car to victory lane and all but assured himself a spot in the chase at the end of the season.

Keselowski was forced into his backup car after he was involved in a wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya during Friday's first practice session. Kasey Kahne finished second and was followed by Denny Hamlin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jeff Gordon came in fifth and was followed by Jimmie Johnson which gave Hendrik Motorsports four of the top six positions in the race.

Kyle Busch led 116 laps of the race before a broken shock took him out of contention. Busch went on to finish 10th but looked to have the strongest car at least through the early portions of the race.
