Keselowski races to Penske’s 499th win
Brad Keselowski has given Roger Penske his first win in NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 series. Keselowski took the lead with a daring pass, bumping leader Denny Hamlin as they came around the 2.5-mile oval on the second-to-last lap. Keselowski finally made the pass coming down the front straightaway and pulled away to win by 0.904 seconds over Erik Jones. Hamlin was third. The win is No. 499 for Team Penske, which has won a record 17 Indianapolis 500s on the track. It’s also Keselowski’s first Brickyard win and his second straight win heading into the playoffs. Kyle Busch captured the regular-season points title. The other drivers competing for the Cup title are Jimmie Johnson, Alex Bowman, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson, Hamlin, Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott, Jones, Aric Almirola and Ryan Newman.
