Brad Keselowski led only a half a lap Sunday but had the lead when it mattered as the Penske Racing driver scored an upset win in NASCAR’s version of March Madness overtime. Keselowski held off both Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch both of whom were the class of the field most of the day to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup series AAA 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

“It was really an up and down day, for sure,” Keselowski said. “But as a team and Paul (crew chief Paul Wolfe) and the guys on pit road kept fighting.  At the end, we caught some breaks and made the most of the breaks we caught, and that was kind of the story of our race.”

Keselowski took the lead on the second of two green white checkered flag finishes after being the only car among the leaders to take four tires on the final pit stop prior to the first green white checkered flag finish.  He restarted 14th but quickly moved his way up. MORE>>>
