Brad Keselowski went from third to first in the first turn of the penultimate lap on a green-white-checkered restart, and scored the win in Saturday’s Heluva! Good 200 Nationwide race. 

Polesitter Joey Logano and his teammate Kyle Busch had dominated the event until the final restart, and were one two, when Busch, who was the race leader, had a flat right rear tire going into turn one. 

As Busch slowed suddenly, Logano got into the back of Busch’s car, slowing himself down and sending Busch up the track. That opened the door for Keselowski, who drove by on the inside and sailed away to the win. 

Logano, who fell to third after the incident, was able to get past Clint Bowyer at the white flag, but didn’t have time to catch Keselowski.  

Busch finished 17th, and saw his points lead reduced to 40, thanks to Carl Edwards’ fifth place finish. 

The win also brightens the week for Dale Earnhardt, Jr., who is Keselowski’s car owner. And coincidentally, Keselowski’s crew chief is Tony Eury, Sr.
