NNS: Brad Keselowski Wins at Las Vegas

Brad Keselowski gambled his way to the victory at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this afternoon after a battery issue with about 10 laps remaining that nearly cost him his 28th victory in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Keselowski dominated the race by leading a total of four different times to go on and lead 144 of the 200 scheduled laps. Today marked Keselowski’s third top-10 finish and first win of the 2014 racing season.

Coming home in second was home-town boy Kyle Busch. Busch had an issue with a restart that could have took him to the lead later on. He was able to close in on Keselowski with 10 laps remaining but lapped traffic had a say in that. In his 11th start today at Las Vegas, Busch led a total of 33 laps and finished inside the top-10 for his third time. He qualified seventh for the race earlier today, but had to go to the tail end at the start for unapproved adjustments. Despite this, it did not hold him back as within the first 15 laps, Busch was inside the top-10.

Kyle Larson finished the event in the third position after having some struggles early on. Larson nearly spun the car in the opening laps that put damage on the No. 42 Target Chevrolet for Turner-Scott Motorsports. Larson started the day off from the fourth position to post his first top-10 in two starts at Las Vegas.
