NASCAR At Kentucky: Brad Keselowski Takes The Green Flag For Third Win Of Season

Brad Keselowski had just just enough fuel left in his tank to claim his third win of the season at the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Keselowski built a lead in the later portion of the race and then managed his fuel well to claim the victory.

Kasey Kahne battled back from an early unscheduled pit stop to finish second. Denny Hamlin finished third and was followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon. Pole sitter Jimmie Johnson came in sixth.

Last week's winner Clint Bowyer finished 16th but had to battle back after contact from Ryan Newman and Joey Logano left him with what he thought was a flat tire. Carl Edwards finished 20th.
