Not all the action was confined to the track Saturday night. An action packed NASCAR Sprint Cup series Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway was a typical short track battle with the winner decided in the final laps.  Getting to that point however meant fenders were bent, cars were spun and feeling were hurt.

In the final few laps Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski battled for the lead with Kenseth blocking Keselowski on the high side. While those two dueled, Joey Logano was able to slide by on the inside and power his way to victory. Keselowski held on to finish fourth, Kenseth fifth.

On the cool down lap, Keselowski’s anger was obvious as he ran his Ford into the Toyota of Kenseth. MORE>>>
