After winning at Charlotte Motor Speedway over Memorial Day weekend, Brad Keselowski found himself once again in the winner’s circle on Sunday at the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Keselowski capitalized on a collision late between the two leaders, Chase Elliott and Joey Logano with two laps to go. Keselowski seized the lead and ultimately came out victorious, beating out Clint Bowyer who finished second.
Keselowski is the first driver this season who won the poll for the race as well as the actual race itself. With the win, Keselowski now joins Logano and Denny Hamlin as the only racers in the Cup Series with two wins this year. Keselowski is also now in second in the standings, behind Logano.
In commenting on the win, Keselowski had an interesting analogy for it. “I felt like I was in Las Vegas. I went from having a bad hand to a full house real quick,” he said. “We were in position and able to strike when it counted. Joey and Chase got together there. I don’t know what all caused it, but we were just in position to strike and here we are in victory lane.”
Next on the docket for the Cup Series is the Folds Of Honor QuikTrip 500 on June 7, where Keselowski will look to make it three wins in his last four Cup Series races.
