Brad Keselowski was the class of the field Saturday night leading a race high 199 of 267 laps in route to victory in the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.  His only issue came during a final round of stops when he was forced to restart in sixth. As he did all night though Keselowski was able to charge forward and retake the lead from Kyle Busch with 19 laps to go and never looked back.

With the win Keselowski became the first driver to score two wins at Kentucky, his first coming in 2012. It also marked the first time in his six pole starts that he won from the first starting spot.

“Our car was awesome,” Keselowski said in victory lane. “The team did a great job and I’m just really thankful to have a car this good.  I don’t know how else to put it.”

Kyle Busch took the lead late thanks to a lucky break.  MORE>>>
