Two drivers gambled Sunday but only one came out a winner. Brad Keselowski was able to pass Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the final lap of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to score his first win of the season.

Both drivers gambled earlier in the race, Keselowski stayed out during a lap 155 caution to get track position. Earnhardt’s crew kept him out during a caution on lap 220 and tried to stretch his fuel mileage; he came up a half a lap short and Keselowski was able to power by for the win.

“It’s such a relief for myself and everyone on the team to get that win in early and being able to enjoy the racing opportunities that we have, rather than being stressed out about it,” Keselowski said. “The chance that Dale and Stevie took with the 88 car was way out there.”MORE>>>
