Keselowski Earns First Win

Brad Keselowski passed Clint Bowyer with six laps to go, and never looked back, winning the Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville Superspeedway.

Keselowski got off pit sequence with the other leaders, and the strategy paid off. With 77 laps to go, the leaders made their final pit stops, while Keselowski made his final stop with 41 to go.

David Reutimann seemed to be cruising to victory when a late-race caution bunched the field back up. On the restart, Bowyer battled Reutimann for the lead.

After some contact, Boyer took the lead from Reutimann. Keselowski dropped to the inside of Bowyer shortly after that to take the lead.

Top 10: Keselowski, David Stremme, Reutimann, Bowyer, David Ragan,Mike Wallace, Scott Wimmer, Kelly Bires, Landon Cassill, and Greg Biffle.

Notables: Carl Edwards (13th), Kyle Busch (20th), Joey Logano (31st),

Joes Logano led the race early but ran into trouble on lap 89. He got together with Biffle, then made contact with Busch before hitting the wall, ending his chances at victory.
