Brad Keselowski tops Truex in dominant Richmond Cup win

Keselowski, led 192 of 400 laps, including the final 48 on his way to the win in Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.

Keselowski and most of the field utilized a two-stop pit strategy during the final stage, went green the entire way. He ended up taking the checkered flag nearly 2.6 second ahead of Martin Truex Jr.

The win is Keselowski’s fourth of the 2020 season and 34th of his career. His No. 2 Penske team ran the same chassis as his victory at New Hampshire last month.

“It was a great race for us and the No. 2 team.  This is, I think my car from Loudon, and I wanted to do a really cool burnout with it, but I want this car for Phoenix. It’s 2-for-2 and I’m real pumped," Keselowski said. "I don’t want to look too far ahead. We’ve got to get there.

"The next round is going to be really difficult, but, still, I’m really pumped about this performance and the way we run at short tracks. I felt like coming in here that we would run well, but this thing was awesome.”

Asked what kind of statement his win could say for his championship hopes, Keselowski said, "We’ve got to get there. The last two years I haven’t made it all the way, so we’ve got to get all the way there, but if we can get to Phoenix, we’re going to be really good.”

Joey Logano finished third, Austin Dillon fourth and Chase Elliott rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Kyle Busch, Harvick, Aric Almirola, Alex Bowman and Clint Bowyer.
