Brad Keselowski avoided trouble through three cautions that marred the final 13 laps of the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Sunday to take the checkered flag, his second win of the season and his second-career series win at the largest track on the NASCAR circuit. The win by the No. 2 Penske Racing Dodge was also the first win for Dodge at Talladega since Dave Marcis drove to victory lane there 36 years ago.
After the final caution, the fifth of the race that created a green-white-checker attempt to end the evebt under green, Matt Kenseth restarted first with Keselowski in second. Kenseth drove out to the front on the restart with drafting help from Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle, but Keselowski got a push from Kyle Busch as the field headed toward to white flag and the final lap. After getting by Kenseth and Biffle, Keselowski and Busch got separated, and Busch was unable to get back up to and around Keselowski.
“I had this whole plan,” Keselowski said in...
BEST OF MAXIM
What a race. A great one at that, but it’s a damn shame so many competitive drivers had to wreck there at the end. Who am I kidding, that was Talladega racing boys! In the end, the driver of the #2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger delivered when it counted. The victory for Brad was his second at Talladega in just four years. Keselowski picked up the first win of his career in the very...

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Brad Keselowski got a huge push from Kyle Busch to take the lead with a lap to go Sunday, then used a calculated move to prevent Busch from taking the win away from him at Talladega Superspeedway. A nine-car accident with four laps remaining brought out the yellow flag, setting up a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish. Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth was the...
FVP loves when NASCAR drivers speak openly to the media. Say what you will about Kyle Busch and his attitude, he definitely is unfiltered. Sunday was no different, speaking his mind in his usual irreverent manor after a respectable second place finish to race winner Brad Keselowski. Some of his answers were the usual curt replies. You'd think the guy would be happy coming home...
Brad Keselowski allowed his inner daredevil to emerge at Talladega Superspeedway Sunday.
"At Talladega, you don't have a plan," Keselowski said. "You go up front and race your butt off all day long. You either get to the front or you don't."
But Keselowski did indeed have a plan. He knew precisely what his strategy would be if he could maneuver his way...
The last time a Dodge was in Victory Lane at Talladega Superspeedway was in 1976 when Dave Marcus piloted his Dodge to victory at the 2.66-mile high banked speedway. Brad Keselowski updated that stat today with his second victory at the famed high banked track, which was also his second victory of the season in the Aaron's 499.
Keselowski used a great move that no one had ever...

It looks like more crew chiefs are trying to be like Chad Knaus. Of course, pushing the rules limits is in the job description of being a NASCAR crew chief. Only difference is, these guys aren’t smart enough to get away with it.
And it's not like this is some under-the-radar team. The two cars in question are the No. 22 of Brad Keselowski and the No. 12 of Sam Hornish...
