Two in a row for Brad Keselowski
Penske Racing’s driver Brad Keselowski scored his fourth win in 2016 Nascar Sprint Cup Series and second in a row after he was fastest in Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.
Kevin Harvick had the pole position for the race and led most laps on repaved track which proved to be a problem for many drivers. Joey Logano, Jimmie Johnson, AJ Allmendinger and Chase Elliott are just some of those who were forced to retire after crashes.
Keselowski led last 65 laps, saving enough fuel to hold off Carl Edwards who pushed hard in the last two laps but had to settle for second place. Ryan Newman finished 3rd what is his best result this year.
Kevin Harvick is still at the top of the Drivers’ championship with 599 points, only four ahead of Brad Keselowski, while Kurt Busch sits at third with 585 points.
